Evictions

The legal eviction process is made up of 3 essential steps:

  • 3 Day Notice
  • 5 Day Eviction or an Unlawful Detainer
  • 24 Hour Writ of Possession

Eviction Process Flow Chart

Contesting an Eviction

  • The tenant may petition the court to stay the eviction (halt further legal procedures) at the Osceola County Clerk of Courts.
  • If the Judge grants you, the tenant, your request, the eviction is cancelled and you, the tenant, can remain in the property.
  • To proceed with the eviction after a cancellation, the plaintiff/landlord must file an “alias” Writ of Possession with the Osceola County Clerk of Courts. A new $90.00 fee will be charged.
