Eviction Services in Baltimore City

What is an Eviction?

The eviction process in Maryland is more than simply allowing a landlord to kick a tenant out for the property and throwing their belongings in the street. It is a legal procedure that must go through the Maryland district court. It starts with filing a failure to pay rent notice (FTPR) on behalf of the Landlord against the tenant for failing to pay their rent on time. A Landlord can request a money judgment, which is a court order to force the tenant to render the necessary funds back to the Landlord. Aside from that, a Landlord may also seek to eviction his or her Tenant(s) from the property. Following the FTPR judgment, a Landlord may file a Warrant of Restitution (WOR) to seek an eviction. A Landlord must contact the sheriff to schedule an eviction. From there, an Eviction Notification must be posted. MarylandRentCourt.com also offers a wide selection of other Eviction Services in Baltimore City.
