RESIDENTIAL EVICTIONS START UP May 19, 2020

Updated: May 16

Since the first cases of COVID 19 were diagnosed in the United States, the Governor and local County Judges have imposed restrictions on human contact that led to a moratorium on eviction proceedings in residential cases. While the shutdown of eviction cases has provided much needed breathing room for many who have been laid off since the start of the COVID crisis, the moratorium has been difficult for landlords who must continue to pay mortgages, home maintenance costs and in some cases, utilities. Today, the Supreme Court of Texas issued an Order providing that eviction proceedings in Texas will resume on May 19 and Orders for Writ of Possession may executed beginning on May 26th. This is good news for Landlords with a backlog of eviction cases that you need filed and resolved fast, so that you can get back to the business of taking care of your family.
