Filed under: Landlord-tenant

No writ has been issued yet. Can a writ be issued and can I be forced out during an appeal process? The mortgage co. said that they had sent me a notice to vacate in Nov., I did not get it, they have no proof that I received it either. I was served papers to appear in court on the 28th of Jan., went to court on Feb 3rd, was givren til Feb 14th. Judge said that I have til today to appeal.

It provides the details of appealing an eviction starting on page 4. I suggest hiring an attorney.

To start, you'll need to file a notice of appeal, and post a bond. Talk to the JP court clerk.

If you think you have a good case, I strongly suggest you hire an attorney, otherwise all you're going to do is delay the inevitable.
