received notice that landlord is filing an eviction for non-payment. How long will that take for him to execute and from there, how many days do we have before being forced out?
The writ will be issued five days after the date of judgment. In the case of non-payment of rent the judgment will most likely be issued on the date of the hearing unless you pay the amount demanded.
If the eviction was for a "material and irreparable breach," then the Writ of Restitution can be issued 12 to 24 hours after the Judgment is signed. If the eviction is for nonpayment of rent or any other reason, then the Writ of Restitution can be issued on the sixth calendar day after the Judgment is signed. In both cases, you must file an "Application for Writ of Restitution" with the court and pay the court filing fee and the fee to the constable (in justice court) or the sheriff (in superior court) to serve the Writ upon the tenants.
The foregoing is based on Arizona law and the limited facts that appear in the question.
