Day of Eviction

The previous step is the Writ of Possession

4. Day of the Eviction

The day of the eviction, we will expect the plaintiff or his or her agent to check the location to see it the defendant has vacated voluntarily. To confirm or cancel the eviction, please call the Sheriff's Office, Civil Division, at 563-326-8627 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (except holidays) to schedule an eviction time. We will not respond until we hear from you. If you discover that the defendant has vacated previous to the eviction date, please inform our office so we can use that time for other purposes.

At the time of the eviction, we will expect the plaintiff to provide enough manpower to complete the eviction in approximately one hour. We recognize that unusual situations requiring some more time will occur occasionally. The process must be completed by 4:00 p.m. and will be scheduled with that goal in mind. Our function is to provide the authority, keep the peace, and direct the procedure.

We also request that the plaintiff provide enough boxes and large trash bags to facilitate efficient moving of property. If heavy rain or snow is imminent, it is suggested that sheets of plastic be used to cover the property to prevent unnecessary damage. The eviction will only be postponed because of more severe weather conditions. If a waterbed needs to be drained we may request that you bring a pump in the interest of time. If a refrigerator or freezer is involved, we will expect the plaintiff to secure the appliance so a child will not have access or remove the door.

We will have the plaintiff move the property to the area where garbage pickup is done. We expect the plaintiff to remove all property/garbage from the location. We will not get involved in determining what is valuable and what is not. If the defendant vacates voluntarily, it is up to the plaintiff to decide if they want to have our office stand by while any remaining property is removed. If the eviction procedure is canceled, the plaintiff accepts any liability for property left behind.
