I served the tenant. How do I get my trial date?

How can I find out if the tenant responded to the complaint?

You can contact the court at 916-875-7746; please have your case number ready.

If the tenant did not respond - What forms do I need for a Default/Clerk's Judgment and possession?

What do I do after a Writ of Possession has been issued by the court?

Take the original Writ of Possession (EJ-130) to the Sheriff's Civil Department located at: 3341 Power Inn Road, Room 313.

Can a lock-out be delayed?

Yes, if the tenant files a motion requesting a delay of the lock-out.
