(2) The court, follow hg a judicial hearing, may grant an order for possession immediately. This entitles the claimant to apply for a warrant to have the defendant evicted. However, even where a warrant for possession is issued, the parties can still negotiate a compromise to prevent eviction.
(3) Includes outright and suspended orders, the latter being where the court grants the claimant possession but suspends the operation of the order.
