If you donâ€™t leave by the deadline set out in the termination notice, you must be personally served with a summons and eviction complaint (the new owner must go to court to get you out).â€©
You have the right to contest the eviction complaint before a judge (by filing a formal written response to the eviction complaint). â€©
After notice and a hearing, the court issues an eviction judgment.â€© The court issues an order giving you a few days to move before the sheriff is allowed to remove you. (Except in a few judicial foreclosure states, the court order authorizing the sale also authorizes the sheriff to evict you after the sale, after a required brief notice is served on you).
Once you receive and Unlawful Detainer you have only 5 days to answer. if you don"t answer then the landlord can file for a default judgement, get his writ of possession, notify the sheriff's and in a matter of a month or two you could be faced with a lockout.
You have a few options as a homeowner to delay your eviction.
It's extremely important to get representation in these matters since a good legal team can protect your interests.
