    Eviction Process Overview

    The following information is not intended to be legal advice and does not address specific statutory and legal issues of evictions and Writs of Restitution.  Our intent is to provide general guidelines related to the Teller County Sheriff’s Office policy and procedure for executing Writs of Restitution (evictions). 

    The forms referred to below can be found at the Colorado State Judicial Branch website

    The Residential Eviction Process Consists of Three Steps:

        1.  Notice to Vacate, Notice to Quit or Three-Day Notice -
    also referred to as the Landlord Eviction Form
                 The property owner/manage can post this notice.
                 Notice must state why the owner/manager wants the tenants to vacate and must give a time limit.

        2.  Summons and Complaint in Unlawful Detainer (SCUD) - also referred to as Forcible Entry & Detainer (FED)
                 If tenant fails to vacate, the property owner/manager must go to the Teller County Courthouse to obtain a
                   Summons and Complaint in Unlawful Detainer and be scheduled for a court date.
                 May be served by a disinterested party over the age of 18
                 Must be served or posted no later than 7 business days prior to the Court hearing

        3.  Writ of Restitution (Eviction Order) - order to remove tenants and their possessions from the property.
                   If the Court renders a verdict in favor of the property owner, they will issue a Writ of Restitution.
                   The Writ of Restitution must be brought to the Sheriff’s Office civil division to schedule a date and time for the
                     Writ to be executed (the actual eviction).
                   The Writ of Restitution is posted at the property at least 48 hours before the Writ is executed.
                   At the time of the eviction, the property owner/ manager must have a crew available to move the tenant’s
                    possessions to the curb.  He must also arrange to have the locks changed at this time.
