Writ of Restitution

The Sheriff's Office responsibilities at the time of Eviction:

The deputy will stand by to keep the peace.

  1. The deputy will supervise the move out and see that it is done in a peaceful manner. The deputy will oversee until the eviction is complete.
  2. The deputy will restore the property back to the landlord/agent following the completion of the eviction.
  3. Once the Writ of Restitution is complete, deputy will post a "No Trespassing Sign" as well as a copy of the Order.

Note: Any questions regarding storage of property, landlord liens, etc. must be handled through YOUR attorney. Colorado State Statute 30-10- 520 STRICTLY prohibits deputies from giving legal advice.

(see recommended formula below).
  • Recommended formula, Minimum 6 workers up to 1000 sq feet and 1 additional worker per 200 additional sq feet.
