This the morning the Texas Supreme Court issued an order renewing amending its order dated May 14, 2020, regarding evictions. The Court ordered that landlords who file or have filed eviction proceedings between March 27 and August 24, 2020 must state in the petition whether the CARES Act applies to the premises and the lessee and whether the landlord has given 30 days’ notice to vacate as required by the Act. The CARES Act, enacted by Congress in late March, imposes a 120-day moratorium on evictions from properties with a federally backed mortgage loan or that participate in a “covered housing program,” such as public housing, low-income tax credit housing, or Section 8 housing. While SCOTX’s order allows a judge to develop facts in an eviction proceeding already filed during the period covered by the order, no evictions may be ordered or late fees or other penalties charged for nonpayment of rent. A copy of the Court’s order may be found below.
