Appealing Against a Writ Eviction
A tenant has limited time to file an appeal opposing a writ eviction. Applying to the court and explaining why the tenant thinks the eviction was unfair or illegal is the first step in the appeals process.
A district judge will hear the tenant’s appeal in a county court. If the tenant is in rent arrears or there are irregularities in the eviction process, the judge will consider these factors.
The eviction procedure might be stopped or, in some cases, reversed if the appeal is successful. If the request is denied, the tenant will be asked to leave the property, and the eviction will occur.
Tenants must seek legal counsel before filing an appeal against a writ eviction. By doing so, you can ensure the tenant is fully aware of their rights and the possible results of the appeals process.
