A: A landlord can move for eviction as soon as you are in violation of the lease agreement. This can be for many reasons but the most common reason for a landlord to file for an eviction is due to late rent. In Indiana a landlord has to post a notice to quit premises or pay giving the renter 10 days to get current with the rent, stop violating the lease agreement, as well as pay any other fees they are behind on. This requirement can be waived if the landlord and tenant agree.

After an eviction order is obtained there is no set time for how long a tenant can stay in the rental property before they have to surrender the property. It can range from days to weeks. It is entirely up to the judge granting the order or an agreement between the two parties.
