The Alameda County Superior Court extended a countywide stay Friday on the execution of writs of possession, which allow landlords to physically remove tenants from their properties, that were issued in eviction matters.

A writ of possession may be issued after a court rules in favor of a landlord in an eviction case. The court previously extended this stay to Aug. 16 in July. The new extension will last until Dec. 31.

Along with this extension, the court issued amendments to emergency local rules that in part remove prior limitations on motions that could be filed in unlawful detainer, or eviction, actions.
