Texas Writ of Possession

What Happens After a Writ of Possession?

After the court orders an eviction against your tenant, they have a minimum grace period of at least five days after the judgement to vacate your property.

To acquire a Texas writ of possession that will lawfully enable you to reclaim your property after your evicted tenant's grace period is over, you must go to the county clerk's office and pay a fee to have the writ issued. The writ is then passed on to the constable's office and the constable will physically deliver a copy to the tenant at the location of your property. If the tenant is not there, the constable will leave a copy of the writ of possession at the property, usually by affixing it to the outside of the front door.

After a Texas writ of possession is delivered, the earliest a constable can actually come back and move the tenant out is 24 hours. Among other things, this gives the tenant one last chance to get out of the property. If they are not out and if weather permits, the constables will physically remove them and their property. Constables are prohibited by law from removing a tenant from the property while it is sleeting, raining, or snowing outside.
