Warrant of Restitution Form DC-CV-081

After a Judgement is granted in the landlord’s favor in the Failure To Pay Rent case the court will order the tenant to vacate the property within four days. If the tenant has not moved out within four days we need to file the warrant. This is the second step in the eviction process and the first step towards the removal of the tenant from the property. The warrant directs the sheriff to allow the landlord to take possession of the property.

When Can I File The Warrant?

We file the warrant after the appeal period is over. This is always four days after you have received a judgment in your initial FTPR filing
