A: If you lose on the 23rd you would have 10 days to vacate or the landlord can file a writ of possession and have the sheriff remove you. Or you could appeal within 10 days should you lose. As for the procedure - that's not a question that can be answered here as it can be complicated. You should consult local counsel for your options/defenses if you think you have been unfairly terminated. And you would be wise to do so sooner rather than later.
