If a unlawful detainer has been ruled in favor of the land

Customer Question

If a unlawful detainer has been ruled in favor of the land lord, can a writ for the amount of money owed be executed without further court action or is that a civil matter separately?

Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

Hi, that would be a separate civil matter. An unlawful detainer gives the landlord the right back to the premises, but since an unlawful detainer may be based on evicting someone for non fee related issues, an additional action can be pursued for the funds that may be owed.
