Question: When are the eviction protections scheduled to end?

Answer: The CDC’s agency order to temporarily halt residential evictions for failure to pay rent or late fees expires December 31, 2020.

This nationwide eviction moratorium orders landlords and those with a legal right to pursue eviction to not do so in order to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

Moreover, the Texas Supreme Court recently issued an emergency order which states eviction citations must include CDC eviction moratorium information in addition to a copy of the required declaration form.
