Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
The police can't put you out on the street without an order of eviction.
Basically they would have to give you notice to vacate, and if you stay past the notice date, they would have to go to court to evict you.
They would have to file for eviction, serve you with notice of that lawsuit, give you time to respond (generally about 10 days), and then get a judgment.
After a period of time, that judgment becomes final, and they can get a writ of execution, at which time they could take that to the sheriff to forcibly remove you from the premises.
But until that time, they can't get the police to remove you.
And they also can't engage in "self help" eviction, meaning that if they try to change your locks or remove your stuff, GET A LAWYER and sue them, as that's illegal.
In short, the earliest that they could actually get you out of the property legally would be at least 2 weeks (and that's assuming a lightning fast eviction process).
It's more likely a month, and that means that they probably wouldn't even file if you only needed 5 days.
