If the landlord applies to the Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service or Provincial Court, the tenant will be served with new documents from the landlord. See our Who Can Help page for a list of service providers that can provide further information to landlords and tenants about this process.
An order for recovery of possession is a court order directing the tenant to move out and give up possession of the unit to the landlord. If the tenant does not move after being served the order, the landlord may be able to hire a civil enforcement agency to evict the tenant. A civil enforcement agency bailiff can then come to the property, remove the tenant and any of the tenant’s belongings. Only the bailiff has the power to physically remove the tenant and the tenant’s belongings. The landlord cannot remove the tenant themselves.
