If landlord/owner attempts to evict a tenant(s) prior to the date listed on the Final Eviction Notice, tenant(s) should contact their local law enforcement agency.
An eviction can be stopped only by Plaintiff/Plaintiff’s Attorney, or by a court order specifically staying/stopping the eviction. The court order must be signed by a Judge. A motion does not stop an eviction. If the tenant(s) receives a stay order, it is the tenant(s)’s responsibility to notify the landlord/owner and the Sheriff’s Office, on the same day, to ensure the eviction will be canceled. The Sheriff’s Office will not contact the landlord/owner.
