Eviction Process
To start the eviction process:
  • Send (registered letter with return receipt requested is recommended) or have served upon the tenant by the Sheriff of Loudoun County, a five-day Pay or Quit Notice (for non-payment of rent), or send or have served upon the tenant by the Sheriff of Loudoun County, a 30-day Notice (for any other acceptable reason)
  • File for possession of the property with a Summons for Unlawful Detainer (tenant is unlawfully "detaining" your property)
  • Once judgment is granted and no appeal has been noted by the defendant, then a Writ of Possession can be filed (the Writ of Possession gives authority to the Sheriff to provide protection in order for the plaintiff to remove the belongings of the tenant)

An Eviction Packet is available from the Loudoun County General District Court Clerk's Office, Civil Division that outlines the eviction process. The Clerk's office is located at 18 Market Street, NE, Leesburg, Virginia 20175 or you may phone 703-777-0312.
