Evictions Frozen In Texas! Loved Ones Safe For Now
During the last week, the Texas Supreme Court has signed an order that has frozen all eviction procedures for people who might be behind on rent. I wanted to bring this up because you may know somebody who is a caretaker or somebody who has suffered a traumatic brain injury.
They may have lost their job or are concerned about not being able to pay the rent and getting kicked out of the place where they currently live. That’s not going to happen, at least not until April 26, which is what the Texas Supreme Court’s order says. Basically, the order freezes all legal eviction proceedings up until April 26.
What will happen after April 26?
Now we don’t know what’s going to happen after that, and whether or not the order will be extended past that point. That’s because we don’t know what’s going to happen with the Covid-19 pandemic. But if it is extended then we’ll let you know.
And there’s something else that’s important: On the same day that the Texas Supreme Court issued the order about freezing all evictions, Governor Greg Abbott, the governor of Texas, endorsed that order. And so if a loved one feels that they’re under the threat of an eviction and they can’t pay their bills, it’s important to know that this is not going to happen at least until April 26.
If you have any questions about it, feel free to message me or ask in the group. And we’ll answer it as best as we can.
