Texas Supreme Court Ruling

Posted By: Scott Lynch Legislative Updates,

New SCOTX order effective now through December 15

The Supreme Court of Texas issued a 25th emergency order relating to evictions, effective September 17 and expiring December 15. The new order requires all property owners in residential eviction cases to include information in the eviction petition about whether the CARES Act applies to the suit, as well as whether a CDC eviction moratorium Declaration has been delivered to the property owner. It also provides a procedure to allow eviction cases to proceed if the property owner contests the Declaration or the CDC Order.

TAA has created a form members can use to challenge declarations under the CDC order, updated the eviction petition form and published a new FAQ section regarding the SCOTX and CDC orders.

All of these forms are available below.
