Can I get more time to move with an doctor note? I have copd.
I looked up the Ohio Code and I didn't see anything that would give someone grounds to file for a "stay" from the eviction order, for medical reasons or otherwise.
.
But obviously the landlord could voluntarily agree to give you more time if he didn't immediately move to enforce the order. The bailiff or sheriff doesn't perform the eviction until they are formally requested to do so by the landlord. Additionally, they usually notify the tenant at least 24 hours before any eviction to give them one last chance to move. You could contact the local sheriff's office or court to see if the landlord has actually scheduled the eviction. They don't do evictions on the weekend, so if it wasn't scheduled for Friday, the earliest they would do it would be Monday if wasn't already scheduled.
.
So if Friday is the day that the judgment is final and the date the judge said you have to move by, then the landlord couldn't schedule any eviction before Monday and then it can take a day or two if the bailiff or sheriff is busy. It is the first of the month, so they might be backed up.
