An Eviction Case is a lawsuit brought to recover possession of real property, usually 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, including attorney fees, if any, but excluding statutory interest and costs. The Texas Property Code, Chapters 24, 91, 92, 93, and 94, governs the relationship between landlord and tenant, tenancies, and eviction proceedings. Eviction Cases are governed by Justice Court Rules 500 - 507, and Rules 510.1 0 510.13, Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, which can be found in the link below.
