Maryland Eviction Procedure

Eviction is a legal procedure. To evict you, a Maryland landlord must go to district court to get a judgment against you. If he gets one, the court will issue an order of eviction and a sheriff will make you leave the home. A landlord who moves a tenant’s belongings out of the home, changes the locks, or cuts off utilities without a court order may be criminally prosecuted and liable for damages. If this happens, tenants should call the police and an attorney or legal services organization.
