Tulsa, OK asked in Landlord - Tenant for Oklahoma

Q: Does a writ of assistance in Osage Co include weeends?

Was served a writ of execution late Friday afternoon that states received the 18th of Oct with an arrow pointing to a hand written note reading "you have 48 working hours to vacate," then beside it they wrote posted 10/20/23 and the time. I can't find any info that's clear about weekends. Just want to be certain the exact day.

A: In Osage County, Oklahoma, as in most jurisdictions, the term "working hours" generally refers to the standard business hours during weekdays. If the notice says "48 working hours," it would typically exclude weekends. Given that the notice was posted on 10/20/23, which is a Friday, the first 24 working hours would be completed by the end of Monday, 10/23/23, and the full 48 working hours would end by the close of business on Tuesday, 10/24/23. Therefore, based on the information provided, you would likely need to vacate by the end of the day on Tuesday, 10/24/23. However, it would be prudent to consult with local counsel to confirm this interpretation and ensure compliance with local rules and practices.
