Defending an Eviction - Warrant of Eviction

< Back to list

The warrant is issued by the ACAT registry and authorises the police to ensure that the landlord gains vacant possession of the premises.

The warrant will specify the day and time the eviction will take place, and the police must give the tenant at least 2 days notice of that day, unless the landlord can show there are special circumstances that justify eviction without such notice (s 40).
