Day of Eviction for Frederick County...
On the day of the eviction, the Landlord or an Agent for the Landlord must be present to take back possession of the property.
Our agents can be there so you don’t have to. We will have all the correct paperwork so that the process goes smoothly and without a hitch. We can also change any and all locks that the Landlord has to change. Either we can provide the locksets or the Landlord may provide their own.
We suggest giving new tenants the assurance that the locks on their home have been changed since the last tenants vacated. It is imperative that the previous tenants, or their friends and relatives, no longer have access to the property.
A Tenant is typically permitted to remain on-scene until all property is removed, so long as he/she is not hindering the eviction proceedings.
Landlord must have sufficient help.
1 bedroom = 6 helpers,
2 bedroom = 8 helpers,
3 bedroom = 15 helpers
But if the landlord knows that there is not an entire move out, helpers can be adjusted.
Items must be
placed on the
nearest street for 24 hours for tenant to remove. After 24 hours it is
landlords responsibility to remove. It becomes abandoned property.
In accordance with the County Code, failure to remove a Tenant's evicted property from a County right-of-way within 24 hours will result in removal by the County Department of Public Works.
Department of Public Works may remove and dispose of all personal
that is on County property in violation of existing County Code. The County will
bill the owner of the rental real property for all costs incurred in connection
with the removal and disposal of the evicted tenant's personal property.
