Warrant of Restitution Maryland

What is a Warrant of Restitution?

If a landlord wins their failure to pay rent case, the court will order the tenant to vacate the property within 4 days. If the tenant has not moved out in the allotted timeframe, the landlord can request a  warrant of restitution. This is the first step in the eviction process, as it directs the sheriff to allow the landlord to take possession the property. It allows the landlord to remove the tenant’s possession off of the property. During the eviction, the sheriff must be present.
