IMPORTANT - INFORMATION FOR ALL LANDLORDS & RESIDENTS OF RENTAL PROPERTIES

(Evictions for assisted & unassisted properties)

Recently the Supreme Court of Texas and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) issued the following moratoriums on evictions in Texas and Nationally.  These moratoriums are for all landlords and all rental property residents whether the units are assisted or not.  Please read all documents for complete understanding of the requirements and rules (official notices provided for both moratoriums):

1. Supreme Court of Texas moratorium expires on September 30, 2020

2. CDC moratorium expires on December 31, 2020 (Federal Register Notice, CDC Declaration Sample Form & CDC - General Information PowerPoint by HUD)

While these moratoriums do apply to participants that participate on Abilene Housing Authority's (AHA) Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) and Public Housing programs, these are not rules provided by the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).

 

*Note:  The Abilene Housing Authority has provided a "sample Declaration" as mentioned in the CDC notice.  This is for residents to complete and provide to landlords when their ability to pay rent has been negatively impacted.
