Evictions and Debt Collections can Resume on MondayPress Release
AUSTIN, TX — Following the decision to halt evictions and debt collections due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Texas Supreme Court made the decision to allow the process of evictions and debt collections to resume beginning the week of May 18.
This decision comes just after the announcement to reopen many of the businesses which have been shut down throughout the state due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
For owners who are wanting to go through the process of having a tenant evicted, all eviction hearings will start on May 26.
However, this process does not apply to tenants who are protected under the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, or renters currently in homes covered by federally backed mortgages.
Tenants protected under the federal moratorium will be covered until Aug. 23.
For individuals who owe any debt, debt collectors will be able to resume the embellishment of accounts starting later in the month of May.
