After you send the notice and receive no rent you file an eviction proceeding in the appropriate court.  After a hearing the judge decides you are entitled to possession of the premises.  There is usually an appeal period during which nothing happens. When the judge's ruling is final you can ask the clerk to issuesa written directing the sheriff to give you possession.  The sheriff then gives the tenant notice that s/he will have to vacate before a designated day or be physically removed.  If the tenant does not vacate on or before the designated day you will hire laborer's to carry the tenant's property out under the supervision of the sheriff.

 

Depending on the processes in your location the process may take a few months.

You're skipping an important step in the process.  If the tenant does not vacate once the notice period has expired, you have to file an eviction lawsuit.  If you prevail, then, you can obtain the paperwork to have the sheriff physically remove the tenant.  Consult with a local attorney who handles eviction cases.

Hi @johndoe_5359

 

The first step has been completed, which is providing an eviction notice to the tenant. You'll want to be sure that the notice complies with the laws of Tennessee. The next step, if the tenant does not vacate in the time specified, is to file an unlawful detainer action with the court, and ask that the tenant be removed.
