An eviction case is a lawsuit brought to recover possession of real property under Chapter 24 of the Texas Property Code, often by a landlord against a tenant.
A claim for rent may be joined with an eviction case if the amount of rent due and unpaid is not more than $20,000, excluding statutory interest and court costs but including attorney fees, if any. Eviction cases are governed by Rules 500-507 and 510 of Part V of the Rules of Civil Procedure. To the extent of any conflict between Rule 510 and the rest of Part V, Rule 510 applies.

The CARES Act prohibits certain evictions related to federally-funded properties during a 120-day moratorium. An affidavit has been created to prevent courts from evicting a tenant in violation of this federal law. Please read our FAQ section under Evictions titled Determining if an Eviction Case is Subject to Federal Moratorium for the form and details (www.tjctc.org/coronavirus).
