If a Tenant has failed to pay their rent, the following steps must be taken:
- Landlord needs to serve them with a 3 day notice. If they still haven’t paid or vacated, they can proceed with filing of the Complaint.
- Once they are served, they have 5 days to respond. Depending on the response, the Court may set the case for Mediation or a Final Hearing.
- If the Court finds that the response does not allege any legal grounds, the Commercial Landlord can file a Motion to Strike. If it is granted, a default will be entered.
- The Landlord will then file a Motion for Final Default Judgment of Commercial Eviction. Once it is entered, the Judge directs the Clerk to issue a Writ.
- It will then send it to the Sheriff. Thereafter, they will then post a 24 hour notice on the door.
