Forcible Entry & Detainer

Previous step is the notice to terminate

2. Forcible Entry & Detainer

All notices to terminate must be followed up by serving a Forcible Entry & Detainer Notice (FED), which is obtained from the Clerk of Court.  This sets a court date for the landlord and the tenant to appear in court.  The landlord will be requesting an immediate eviction.  The landlord must have all copies of previous notices in the court file to have them available to present at court.

All landlords are required to call the Sheriff’s Office at 563-326-8627 on Friday at 1:00 PM  to find out if their FED was served personally or posted.

If the FED is personally served by the Sheriff’s Office by Friday at 1:00 p.m. the court date will be the date assigned on the FED.

If the FED notice is not personally served by the Sheriff’s Office by 1:00 p.m. on Friday, the Sheriff’s Office will change the court date to the following week, will post the notice on the door of the rental property, and will send the FED notice by regular mail and certified mail to the tenant.

Next is the Writ of Possession
