To be evicted the landlord need to bring a lawsuit and obtain a judgment possession. Then place the matter with the Sheriff and the Sheriff usually takes 2 weeks.

If you have not paid rent, your landlord will have given you a Notice to Quit or Vacate, which tells you how long you have to leave the apartment. You should call your landlord directly with questions to make sure you are in compliance.

This is more a landlord tenant issue but the results are the same. After they serve you with notice to vacate, the most common form being a 72 hour notice to vacate posted on the door, you will have a court hearing set. The FED court has expedited hearings, usually within 14-21 days of filing where the landlord can get a Writ of Restitution against you. Then if you don't get out after that, they will be entitled to a right of setout where a sheriff observes the landlord's workers as they dump any items remaining in the home onto the curb. To come full circle, you will have more than 2 days to move out prior to the court or the sheriff getting involved. Good Luck to you.

A legal eviction requires an order signed by a judge. After that, you have 7 days to move out.

    I'd really need a great deal more detail to answer you accurately. Most importantly, two days after what? After being served with your 5 day notice? Is this a home you own or a rental? Assuming you're speaking of a rental, the basic timeline is that you're served with a 5 day notice, then if you don't pay, you're served with a complaint for summary eviction, usually with a court date within the next 5 days. At that hearing, if you do not show up or do not provide a sufficient justification for your non-payment, the judge will order you out by a certain date, but how long that will be is up to the judge.

    This is a landlord/tennant question, not a foreclosure defense question. Assuming that the sheriff has delivered a writ of possession you have the amount of time specified in it.

    Depends. Has the Landlord gotten an unlawful detainer judgment against you yet? Once the judgment is obtained, the court issues a writ of possession which the Landlord then submits to the sheriff with instructions for the sheriff to carry out the eviction. The sheriff then posts a 5 day notice to vacate on your door. If you're not out when the 5 day notice expires, then the sheriff comes back out and physically removes you from the apartment.
