As the COVID-19 pandemic is fluid, The Dallas City Council is sharing the following regarding tenant rights:
Tenants may not be legally evicted without following the steps required by state law, which includes going through a court proceeding. Although eviction court proceedings have resumed as of June 15 in Dallas County, the City of Dallas is still under a disaster declaration. City of Dallas residents have additional protections provided in the City of Dallas COVID-19 Eviction ordinance if their delinquency is related to COVID-19. These protections include requiring landlords to present a Notice to Vacate to the tenant before pursuing an eviction. Currently, the City of Dallas COVID-19 Eviction Ordinance is in effect through July 11.
If you believe you are facing unlawful eviction, please contact the City of Dallas Office of Fair Housing and Human Rights, 214-670-FAIR (3247).
Additionally, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development has provided informational resources for Renters facing eviction and Homeowners facing foreclosure due to COVID-19.
