Evictions Under
Nebraska Residential Landlord Tenant Law

Residential Evictions
Residential evictions are regulated by the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. Neb. R.R.S. Sections 76-1401 through 76-1449. To comply with the act the landlord must first give a valid notice. After the expiration of the notice period, 3 day, 5 day, 14/30 day, 14 day, or 30 day), if the tenant has heldover, the landlord may commence an action for possession, better known as an eviction. Trial must be held at least 10 days but no more than 14 days after the issuance of the summons. If the court finds in favor of the landlord, a Writ of Restitution may issue commanding the sheriff or constable to restore possession of the premises to the landlord within ten (10) days.

If you have issued a valid notice, from start to finish, an eviction usually takes about 3 weeks. Fees and costs will range between $350 and $500. If the tenant remains in possession after the trial, add $50 to the costs.
