five day notices take 9 judicial days before you can file, if the tenant does not respond the order is sent to the constable,who posts the 24hour notice to vacate premises. the constable then goes to the premises and physically removes the tenant and the lock smith changes the locks.
Tenants may file an appeal and then you have to file a motion to have the tenant deposit with the court the sum equal to the months rent not paid prior to the trial. Most tenants do not have this amount yet judge will tell them to pay at court.
I have to agree with Karen. Here in Las Vegas, it's the Constable's office, and depending how backed up they are (and they're pretty busy now), there's no sweet-talking them to delay removing you. If there's a phone number on your notice to the Realtor handling the foreclosure, give them a call and see if you can arrange for another week or so to get everything moved out. Good luck to you.
so sorry to hear of your situation... Although laws vary by State, if you received the 3-day notice to quit- my understanding is that any time after that 3 days the Sheriff could appear at your door and escort you from the property.
I would make every effort to get your things together, make arrangements to find other accomodations asap. You don't want to wait until they are there to lock up the doors. If you have legal counsel, you may want to pose this question to them
All the best to you.
