Eviction & Other Landlord Issues

If you’re behind on your rent and you’ve applied—or are planning to apply—for rent relief, our accommodation request letter may help you avoid eviction and stay in your housing until rent relief is received.

Asking Your Landlord to Stay In Housing Until Rent Relief Is Received

If you have unpaid rent, past due rent, or late rent and have applied or are planning to apply for rent relief, Disability Rights Texas' accommodation request letter may be able to help you avoid eviction and stay in your housing until rent relief is received.

When can I ask to stay in my home until I receive my rent relief?

Disability Rights Texas offers an interactive accommodation request letter that may help if these circumstances apply to you:

  • Is there a COVID-19 related reason you or someone in your house cannot work and are now facing eviction or a housing crisis?
  • Have you lost income and have unpaid rent, past due rent, or late rent because of COVID-19 and facing eviction is making you or a family member’s mental health worse?
  • Are you unable to work because you care for someone at high risk of COVID-19?
  • Is losing income and facing eviction making you or a family member’s mental health worse?
