If you have a propety warrant and missed the court date for a legitmate medical reason, nothing will happen to you. You will be safe and just explain to the sheriff what the situation is and the sheriff will either let you stay in the place or relocate you to another place which is safe and permissible for you to stay. In either case, things will work out fine for you.

Please rate 4 or 5 stars and close out the question. Good luck to you. I wish you all the best.

I am in Australia, I don’t believe that to be the case. On Monday morning before sheriff comes I will need to call the tribunal and have them call the police to stop said warrant, hopefully then I can get the case re opened and the warrant extended

Hi Leon, I missed the court date on the 8th, the sherif comes 10am tomorrow, They served me with a warrant last night

The payment has failed and the phone call cannot be made.

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question

What does the warrant say?

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Property possession warrant

Does it have a date that you have to be out?

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It’s a property possession warrant so they come and change the locks

Because you have left it so late it is going to be almost impossible to stop them.

The court has made the order and you have not followed it up.

You will need to get an order setting it aside and that is not going to happen in the morning.

Do they say what time they will attend?
