I do haot have with me the lease but I believe that there is no proviso in the lease for method of service. If so, it will be self-explanitory, so let's assume that the lease is not specific on that point.
If the court grants the landlord possession of the premises, he/she must apply for a warrant of removal and select a court officer to conduct the lock-out. The court officer will place a notice on the door of the premises prior to the scheduled lock-out. After the notice is placed on the door, the tenant can go to court and file a request to stop the eviction or for additional time.

Thank you. I had just the one question that you did answer. That information will help me to determine my actions in this particular situation.
