Writ of Possession
A Writ of Possession becomes necessary when the tenant does not move out within the 5-day grace period (not to include Sundays) given to them by the Courts after the judgment of Eviction and Possession has been granted to the property owner. This process is typically called the “physical eviction” and is only need about 22% of the time. If the tenants have not moved themselves and their belongings out by the 6th day after judgment, a Writ of Possession is filed with the court. Once the Writ has been served to the tenants (normally within 72 hours); the tenants then have 24 hours to vacate the property. If they still have not vacated, the constable will return to the property to ensure that the property is delivered back to the owner. In some cases, moving crews will have to be hired to remove the tenant’s personal property to the curb or designated area per the Texas Property Code. The constable, landlord, or landlord representatives are not responsible for any damages or theft of items left on the curb or designated area per the Texas Property code of the tenant’s personal property. Pets will be removed to the nearest animal shelter by Animal Control if left abandoned. It is also best to have a locksmith on-site at this time to change the locks.
We cannot represent owners in an appeal situation. This must be handled by a licensed attorney or by the property owner personally.
