Any person, firm, corporation, or county that is the grantee of any tax deed under
this law shall be entitled to the immediate possession of the lands described in the
deed. If a demand for possession is refused, the purchaser may apply to the circuit court
for a writ of assistance upon 5 days' notice directed to the person refusing to deliver
possession. Upon service of the responsive pleadings, if any, the matter shall proceed as in
chancery cases. If the court finds for the applicant, an order shall be issued by the court directing
the sheriff to put the grantee in possession of the lands.
