Evictions

Our Eviction Section’s Phone Number is: 770-822-8233

Evictions (Writ of Possession) are scheduled as they are received. You can contact our Eviction Section at 770-822-8233 for additional information. You have to obtain a certified copy of a Writ of Possession to Evict from the Clerk of the Court where you filed the Dispossessory Proceeding.

You then bring the Writ to our Office and pay a Fee of $25 [this fee is set by state law, O.C.G.A. .ยง 15-16-21 (b.)(12)]. Once we have the Writ and the Writ Fee, we will schedule the eviction with you. If you do not schedule your eviction within sixty (60) days, we will return the Writ to the Clerk of Court.

A labor force of at least two people per bedroom for residential evictions is required. If you are aware that the house is “packed” (full of items), you should increase your labor force so that the eviction can be completed in two (2) hours. We must know if any unhealthy conditions exist or may exist. Deputies do not assist in the physical removal of property.

The labor required for a business eviction will be determined on a case by case basis. We must know the following information: if any alcohol or cigarettes (for sale) are present (such as a bar or restaurant); flammables or hazardous materials; groceries; if the power has been turned off for a long time; any other unhealthy conditions. We also need to know generally what type of items will be found at the business, especially heavy or bulky items.
