You can ask the marshal for a legal possession or a full eviction. In a legal possession the marshal will change the locks and leave the tenant’s belongings in the apartment. In a full eviction the marshal will remove all of the tenant’s belongings and put them in storage.
If you choose a possession, you will have to make arrangements with the tenant for the tenant to remove his or her belongings. If the tenant does not remove his or her belongings, you will be responsible for putting them in storage. You cannot keep the tenant’s belongings.
After the tenant is evicted, he or she may go back to court and request more time to come up with the back rent. This is called a post eviction order to show cause. If the judge grants it, you may be ordered to leave the tenant’s belongings in the apartment and not re-rent the apartment until after a new court date. You may also be ordered to provide limited access for the tenant to the apartment to get some belongings.
