UPDATE ON EVICTION CASES (as of September 17, 2020)

NOTICE TO LANDLORDS - In accordance with the Supreme Court’s Twenty-Fifth Emergency Order (Click here to read full order), on any RESIDENTIAL eviction proceeding filed through December 15, 2020, the sworn petition for eviction must contain a statement that the premises is not a covered dwelling subject to the moratorium on evictions imposed under Section 4024 of the CARES Act, that the plaintiff is not a multifamily borrower under forbearance subject to Section 4023 of the CARES Act, that the plaintiff has complied with the 30 day notice to vacate requirements under the CARES Act, and whether the defendant has presented the plaintiff with a declaration under the CDC Order (Click here to read full order) imposing an eviction moratorium on covered persons (which took effect on September 4, 2020). The required statement can be included in your original sworn petition for eviction, in an amended or supplement sworn petition, or you may submit a separate affidavit. Click here for a sample affidavit. *Note that under the CDC’s order, there are serious consequences against landlords who proceed with a nonpayment of rent eviction against a covered person after receiving a declaration.


NOTICE TO TENANTS - The Centers for Disease Control issued an order stopping some evictions. Click here to read full order.  You may be able to stop your eviction if you provide a sworn Declaration under Penalty of Perjury for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Temporary Halt in Evictions to Prevent Further Spread of COVID-19 to your landlord and the court. Before signing the Declaration, read it carefully and make sure all the statements are true. The Declaration is sworn, meaning you can be prosecuted, go to jail, or pay a fine if any of the statements are not true. Find out more about the order at TexasLawHelp.org. Click here for a sample Declaration form to submit to your landlord.
