Once a tenant has broke a contract, how soon can he/she be evicted?
Answered on: 5/31/13, 12:28 pm by Michael E. Hendrickson
As soon as the landlord can get a Warrant for Unlawful Detainer action filed against him, a hearing scheduled in the general district court and finally an order authorizing the eviction of this defaulting tenant, a writ of possession to the landlord and (if applicable) a judgment in favor of the landlord for any amounts still due and owing under the applicable lease.
Bottom line: the actual time frame for the eviction of any particular tenant in any
particular city or county in the Commonwealth can vary widely depending upon
the many factors which may bear on this issue, not the least of which are the
size of the court involved and its geographical location.
