After the magistrate orders an eviction, the tenant has ten days to move out. If the tenant does not move out, the landlord can ask the sheriff to lock the premises. The sheriff must give written notice. The sheriff's notice will include a date and time, which will usually allow the tenant a few days to a week. You can view the law here:
