How do I evict someone in Albuquerque?

Asked by Kurt Grosse, Las Vegas, NV Thu Sep 29, 2011

Do you still give notice, file at the courthouse, see a judge a couple of weeks later, wait 7-10 days for tenant to move, contact sheriff if they don't? Someone told me things have changed in the last two years and the judge step has gone away. Is that true?

Done it many times:

Give 3 day notice
file with court in county
Have them served by a processor
Go to court - Get the Judgement/Writ
Wait the 7 days or whatever they elected - 7 Days is the most
If they don't leave - Sheriff time

That is still the process. You can see it outlined for you on the metro court info pamphlet here:
Good luck!

Hi Kurt,

I evict one tenant for my client at the end of 2010. It is still the same. Three days notice, sheriff deliver the notice, see judge 7-10 days. I'm not sure if any changes take place in 2011. Call the court house clerk, they will be able to tell you if anything have changed.

Good Luck!

Kurt you could google "NM landlord tenant law" and read the law for your state but may want to use a local attorney to make sure it is done correctly to avoid delays. good luck with the eviction
