Wit of possessions (by alice [TX]) Posted on: Apr 14, 2018 3:40 PM


As I drove by my property today, I don't see a sign of the tenants are moving out.

Actually, Texas gives a week(seven days) , e.g. Judgement on Monday, then moving out deadline is on Monday by 5pm, if the tenants do not file the appeal to the county court.

Did any of you go thru the Wit of possessions and the constable comes and remove the tenants belongings to the curb? Any thing I need to know about this process.

The issue is the tenant will have another two free weeks to stay in the property until the constable come to the door.

What kind of legal loopholes in the legal system? They knew how to play the game. Unluckily, I only heard from last landlord that the same tenant did not pay one month and ten days rent, the eviction was filed, but the tenant moved out on the day of the hearing, so the eviction had to dismiss, but they still owed one month and ten days rent.

Now, they owe me four months rent. And they said they are moving to another state, so they can play the same game again to get the free rent.

Can any legal/law to prevent this type person repeating their behavior.
