What if the eviction order is not stopped?

You must move out by the date given in the Board's order. If you do not, your landlord can tell a public official called the "Sheriff" to make you leave.

The Sheriff is the only person who is allowed to actually force you out or lock you out. It is against the law for your landlord, a security guard, or anybody else to do this. Your landlord cannot change the locks until the Sheriff comes and allows it.
