Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to helping you today.

If the tenant loses their case, the judge will sign an eviction order. At that point, a tenant has 7 days to vacate the premises or appeal the decision. If the tenant doesn't vacate, a landlord can ask the sheriff's office to come to the home and make the tenant leave. A landlord cannot however force a tenant out of the home without the sheriff's office present.
