We expedite the ejectment process by filing motions for writ of possession where defendant has failed to answer the complaint. We also use efficient process servers to minimize the wait time.
There are two ways to remove an unwanted individual from your property: evictions and ejectments. Ejectments are appropriate where there is no landlord tenant relationship between the owner and the occupant of the property. Many ejectments follow a change in ownership of property from sheriff sale. In such cases the prior owner continues to occupy the property but the legal owner is the new purchaser.
Ejectments are a straightforward legal procedure. They process generally takes four to seven months unless the defendant has a meritorious legal defense. The courts generally consider whether the occupant has a right to live at the property (e.g., a lease) in deciding which track to place the case on. Cases that are placed on the fast track take four to seven months whereas cases placed on the standard track take twelve months.
