“Landlords who evict tenants who have filed a CDC declaration under the moratorium may be subject to civil and criminal penalties. However, the State of Texas has indicated that courts will not enforce this policy.”
The State of Texas will begin implementing the Texas Rent Relief Program to help Texans who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, including past due rent and utilities dating as far back as March 13, 2020.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the threat of eviction is real for millions of Americans. For the San Antonians who are unable to make their next rent payment, San Antonio Legal Services Association (SALSA) offers hope: their Tenants’ Rights Program, in which a volunteer attorney helps individuals negotiate with landlords to avoid evictions and prevent homelessness.
