What happens if you don’t answer the door during a sheriff lock out in Lancaster CA ? I have no where to go with my baby till next week
The owner can bring a locksmith to open the door. Once the door is opened, the sheriff will come in and complete the lock out.

If the landlord gets the door open, and by any means he wishes (and this includes knocking the door down), the sheriff will remove you from the property. If you refuse to vacate, the sheriff has the legal right to physically remove you from the property - if you resist, you could face criminal charges.
My suggestion is move before the sheriff arrives. Also, the landlord does not have to give you time to remove your personal items or furniture once the sheriff arrives to lock you out.
