If you and the tenant, or occupant, work out an agreement to settle the case, the agreement will be written up as a stipulation. Before signing the agreement, make sure that you read it carefully and understand it. A stipulation is a binding agreement, like a contract, and cannot be easily changed. The judge or the judge’s court attorney will answer questions you have about the stipulation. The judge should explain the stipulation to you and ask if you have questions before signing it—this is called an allocution. Once the judge signs the stipulation you and the tenant will each get a copy. If the tenant does not comply with the agreement, or stipulation, you will need to ask the court for a judgment and a warrant in order to carry out the eviction. Once you have a judgment and warrant, you must hire a marshal who will request the warrant and perform (or execute) the actual eviction.
