The Status of Eviction-Related Orders in Texas »
Residential eviction proceedings were allowed to resume, and deadlines are no longer tolled, effective May 19, and beginning today, May 26, 2020, warnings may be posted and writs of possession may be executed. As a result, as of today, residential evictions and related proceedings have resumed around the state except where limited by local or court order, subject to one additional procedural requirement for eviction proceedings filed during the core of the COVID-19 pandemic in Texas.
