A: You need to leave as soon as possible. But the owner cannot obtain possession without a Detainer Warrant. It must be filed, served or posted, then a Judgment For Possession goes down in Court. If you are not out in 10 days, then the Owner gets the Sheriff to physically remove you with a Writ of Possession.
