Our office will serve the notice. You will return on the date printed on your receipt to continue with the eviction.
When you return to our office, you will be handed the actual notice and instructed to take it to Justice Court to file for the Summary Eviction. Court requires that their paperwork be typed–Justice Court’s filing fee is $49.00 (We can do this for you, see our pricing page). After filing with the court, you will be handed an Instruction Sheet. From there you can choose to buy our Lock Out Service so that the locks are changed (see pricing page).
Once the court order is received, the notice will be posted the next business day and we will lock-out property the following business day (If you choose to have US do it). Locks must be changed at the time the deputy puts the seal on the door. If you need assistance in changing locks, we can do this for you (see pricing page). A Deputy will contact you between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. the day of the scheduled lock-out to set-up a time to meet. If you are not available, the eviction CAN NOT BE COMPLETED OR POSTPONED.
The Court does not contact the Landlord if the Tenant contests. It is up to the Landlord to search the Justice Court Public Access site to see if the Tenant contested the Eviction Notice. If the Tenant contested, then the Landlord will need to file on the Tenant’s Case that was initiated for the contested Eviction Notice. If the Tenant contested the Eviction after the Landlord files (Tenant files Motion to Stay), then the Landlord will need to check the status of the Motion to Stay the Justice Court Public Access website to see what decision the Judge has rendered on the Motion to Stay. If you have questions regarding this matter, contact Justice Court at (702) 671-3478. If Justice Court informs you to file your paperwork, you will need to come to Constable’s Office to pick-up a copy of your NOTICE to take to Justice Court for filing. Justice Court fee is $71.00.
If Judge orders eviction, immediately bring Instructions to Constable’s Office (or have us do it) and pay lock-out fee. Order will be posted the next business day after we receive it and lock-out the day after posting.
If Judge gives the tenant a day and time to pay or vacate, you must call the court. At that time ask them to forward the order to Constable’s Office (or have us do this).
You will need to bring the “Instructions to the Constable” to our office and pay lock-out fees.
If the court kept your instructions, you need to go there first to pick them up. Since the refund process can take 8-12 weeks, it is suggested you pay for lockout fees ONLY after you know the tenant is not going to abide by the Judge’s instructions.
You are liable for their belongings for 30 days from the day of lock-out. You may charge a reasonable storage fee but cannot hold the property for the rent that was due. If you choose, you may contact a storage company to have the tenant’s property inventoried and stored.
