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.
Evictions are not enforced the week prior to and the week following Christmas. Evictions may be canceled due to severe weather, as determined by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office will call and cancel evictions with the landlord/owner if severe weather prohibits the eviction.
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.
