To forcibly evict you a landlord must take the order of possession down to the BC Supreme Court Registry and get a document called a writ of possession from the Court. This is a very quick process.
To get a writ of possession a landlord must swear an affidavit that says:
- The 2 days for filing an application review consideration has passed;
- The landlord contacted the Residential Tenancy Branch after the time for filing for review had passed and confirmed that no application for review was filed or that the landlord has received a written decision stating that the application for review of the has been refused, dismissed, or concluded with the original decision and order being confirmed.
- The order for possession was not suspended; and
- You have not obeyed the order of possession and vacated your rental unit.
Once a landlord has a writ of possession, s/he can hire a court bailiff to enforce the eviction.
