Tenant Rights During COVID-19

“The COVID-19 pandemic is causing unprecedented impact and uncertainty for tenants and landlords. To address these uncertainties, Texas REALTORS® is providing answers to several frequently asked questions regarding your lease and the COVID-19 pandemic.”

What Current Tenants Need to Know

Paying Rent
No laws have passed or decrees that freeze home rental payments. Tenants are still contractually obligated to make rent payments according to the terms of their lease. If you are unable to pay rent, then communicate with the landlord or property manager as soon as possible. Your landlord or property manager may be able to set up a payment plan, waiver, or a rental forbearance for tenants facing financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Can I get evicted?
Texas Supreme Court has generally suspended proceedings for residential evictions until April 19th. Writs of Possession may be issued but not executed until April 26th.
