What about all my stuff?

If you are evicted by the Sheriff, you have 72 hours to take all your things, even on a weekend or holiday. During these 72 hours, your landlord must keep your things safe in or near your place, and must let you get them any time from 8 in the morning to 8 at night.

These rules apply only if you are evicted by the Sheriff. In any other situation, you should take all your things with you when you move out.

These pages give only general information. You should get legal advice about your own situation.
