A: What happened? Assuming no criminal charges, you may wish to make the landlord go through the entire process for eviction. A Detainer Warrant must be filed, served or posted, a Judgment for Possession rendered, and if you are not out or appeal within 10 days, a Writ of Possession is issued and executed to remove you. The legal process will probably take 45 days or more, so you have time to move.
