Eviction Process Overview 

The following information is not intended to be legal advice and does not address specific statutory and legal issues of evictions and Writs of Restitution. Our intent is to provide general guidelines related to the Teller County Sheriff’s Office policy and procedure for executing a Writ of Restitution (evictions). 

The forms referred to below can be found at the Colorado State Judicial Branch website 

The Residential Eviction Process Consists of Three Steps: 
1. Notice to Vacate, Notice to Quit (10 days notice effective 5/20/2019) - also referred to as the Landlord Eviction Form 
        • The property owner/manage can post this notice. 
        • Notice must state why the owner/manager wants the tenants to vacate and must               give a time limit.

2. Summons in Forcible Entry and Unlawful Detainer - also referred to as Forcible Entry and Detainer (FED) 
        • If tenant fails to vacate, the property owner/manager must go to the Teller County             Courthouse to obtain a Summons in Forcible Entry and Unlawful Detainer and be               scheduled for a court date. 
        • May be served by a disinterested party over the age of 18 
        • Must be served or posted no later than 7 days prior to the Court hearing 

3. Writ of Restitution (Eviction Order) - order to remove tenants and their possessions from the property. 
        • If the Court renders a verdict in favor of the property owner, they will issue a Writ               of Restitution. 
        • The Writ of Restitution must be brought to the Sheriff’s Office civil division to                       schedule a date and time for the Writ to be executed (the actual eviction). 
        • The Writ of Restitution is posted at the property at least 48 hours before the Writ               is executed. 
        • At the time of the eviction, the property owner/manager must have a crew                           available to move the tenant’s possessions to the curb. He/she must also arrange             to have the locks changed at this time.
