Writ of possession

    Here is a great topic to debate.  How long after the eviction judgement can you file a Writ of possession? I have been told 10 different things from 60 days, 90 days even 6 months.  The internet even says its possible to keep renewing it indefinitely.  The courts told me today that I could file it and see if the judge would sign it.  Its like nobody knows for sure.

    Thanks for the help

    Section 24.0061 of the Property Code - 6 days after judgement for possession.  If the Judge ruled in your favor and granted possession of the premises you can file a writ on the 6th day after the eviction hearing.

    Bill is correct for the earliest time, what about the opposite end? How long do you have to file for Writ of Possession before the eviction judgment expires and you have to file for eviction again?  This might come up if you are trying to work things out with the tenant.

    I tried to research this topic before.  I did not come up with a positive answer, but some resources suggested 30 days.

    You can file write of possession  after the days mentioned in the judgment , provided the tenant did not appeal in between .

    Thanks for all the info it seems that this is one of those grey areas. I going to try and file and see if the courts will do it.  The eviction was actually done in November.

    As per one of the JP court I worked, writ possession should be done with in the next billing cycle.

    You mean you had a tenant that actually has something to repossess? Lucky you.
