Introduction

Eviction is a legal process in Missouri and should be treated as such. It is important to understand the process and applicable laws before taking action. This blog post will provide an overview of the eviction process in Missouri and provide helpful resources to support you along the way.

Overview of the Eviction Process in Missouri

The eviction process in Missouri begins with the landlord providing the tenant with a written notice to vacate the premises. The landlord must give the tenant at least three days to vacate the premises unless the tenant is behind on rent, in which case the landlord must give the tenant 10 days to vacate. If the tenant does not vacate the premises, the landlord can file an eviction lawsuit in the circuit court in the county where the property is located.

Obtaining an Order of Possession

If the court rules in favor of the landlord, the court will provide the landlord with an Order of Possession. The Order of Possession provides the landlord with the legal authority to remove the tenant from the property. The sheriff’s department is responsible for enforcing the Order of Possession.

Resources

The Missouri Bar Association provides helpful resources regarding the eviction process in Missouri. You can find information on the landlord and tenant rights and responsibilities, the eviction process, and other helpful resources at MissouriBar.org.
