questions & answers

Question: I have an eviction courtdate .if i miss it what then ?how many days do i have to bacate the premisses ?

Answer: If a tenant receives a summons and eviction complaint from a landlord then both (1) fails to respond in writing to that complaint and (2) does not appear in court for the scheduled hearing, then the judge will most likely enter a default judgment, meaning that the landlord will be awarded whatever the landlord requested. If an eviction order is granted, then the tenant will have 5 days to vacate the dwelling. If the tenant still has not left after 5 days have passed, then a writ of restitution will be issued, permitting the landlord to ask the sheriff or other law enforcement officer to enforce the eviction order and have the tenant removed (A.R.S. 33-1368).
