Erin Marino and Ashley Anderson Discuss Current Trends in Texas Real Estate and the Future for Evictions in The Texas Lawbook
Current trends regarding evictions continue to be dominated by Covid-19 issues and now, in addition to the statutory requirements, landlords are faced with deciding which, if any, Covid-19 protections impair their ability to proceed with an eviction.
In an article published by The Texas Lawbook, Partners Erin Marino and Ashley Anderson discuss the past and present eviction regulations and advise that landlords need to be informed of current restrictions and procedures in order to understand the implications of evicting tenants.
“There have been relatively few opportunities for Texas courts to weigh in on office and retail lease evictions,” writes Marino and Anderson. “This is likely because (1) retail or office landlords and tenants chose to negotiate amendments to address their Covid-19 disputes instead of incurring the cost to pursue legal action and navigating uncharted waters, or (2) such disputes have either been rendered moot or not yet made their way through the courts.”
Marino and Anderson go on to discuss what the future holds, including the most up-to-date orders and cases regarding the eviction landscape in Texas.
