State and federal housing protections have been in place since early in the COVID-19 pandemic to help keep people in their homes during this public health crisis. These provisions have impacted landlords, tenants, and courts in many ways.
A Landlord/Tenant Task Force was created to provide guidance to landlords, renters, attorneys, and courts when eviction cases resume in Indiana. The 10-page report below provides information about eviction cases; helpful forms and resources are available as well.
Please note that courts and court staff cannot offer legal advice. If you need legal help because you are facing eviction, foreclosure, or have another dispute with your landlord, you should seek advice from an attorney. See Appendix A below for more information. You can also review details on getting legal help, visit the Coalition for Court Access website, or see details on the Landlord and Tenant Settlement Conference Program.
The Supreme Court of the United States set aside the CDC Temporary halt on evictions in an opinion issued on August 26, 2021, in Alabama Association of Realtors, et al v. Department of Health and Human Services, et al., 594 U. S. ____ (2021). Please see Appendix A below for a list of resource for rental assistance, settlement conference program, and legal assistance information.
