Lubbock eviction cases on hold, hearing periods may be extended

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

From the Office of Judge Jim Hansen:

On March 13, 2020, the Texas Supreme Court issued an order ceasing all hearings regarding the filing of evictions and foreclosures in Justice of the Peace Courts. It was expected the eviction process would resume April 20, 2020, but there appears to be a likelihood that date will be extended in the very near future.

Private landlords will need to monitor Justice of the Peace websites and the news media for updates as to when filing may resume. It is estimated that 100 to 200 eviction cases in Lubbock are on hold until hearings resume.

The only evictions that may be filed would involve imminent threat, physical harm and criminal activity. You must contact the proper Court (where the property is located) for details.

In addition, President Trump last week signed the CARES ACT, Section 4024 of that Act places an Eviction Moratorium prohibiting non-payment evictions in public housing, Section 8, HUD, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Housing Choice vouchers for 120 days from the effective date, which means July 25.

When evictions resume, they will be conducted by telephonic or video conferencing.
