Once you have completed the dispossessory process and obtained your Writ of Possession and need to evict your tenant you must:
Allow 2 business days for the Writ to reach the Marshal’s Office.
Call the Marshal’s Office @ 404-371-2930 between the hours of 8:30 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. to schedule an appointment for the eviction.
You must provide sufficient labor to safely remove all items (usually a minimum of 5 workers).
You can contact one of the companies that specialize in evictions (look in the Yellow Pages under “Eviction Services”).
You must provide a way to gain entry to the property (such as pass key or a Locksmith).
Once the Deputy has made a safety sweep of the location and given you permission to start, have your labor crew remove all items of value and place them on the closest right-of-way. Items removed from apartments or condos can be placed in the nearest parking space.
The Deputy will post a Criminal Trespass Warning notice on the door and return possession to the landlord, upon completion of the eviction.
Once the Deputy has completed the eviction, evicted items are considered abandoned, per Georgia Law (O.C.G.A. 44-7-55).
Bring large bags or boxes to pack smaller items (such as Contractor Clean-up bags).
Change all locks and secure the location immediately upon the competition of the eviction.
Vehicles can be removed by a wrecker service of your choosing and expense.
For further information, please call the Marshal’s Office @ 404-371-2930.
