Foreclosure/evictions suspended

AUSTIN — Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush issued the following statement commending President Donald Trump and U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson for authorizing the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) to implement an immediate foreclosure and eviction moratorium for single family homeowners with FHA-insured mortgages for the next 60 days:

“I would like to thank President Trump and Secretary Carson for their leadership in the effort to help those affected by the health and safety measures being taken to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

“By suspending all foreclosures and evictions during this pivotal time, it encourages more people to stay home and flatten the curve.

“It is important steps like this that will help mitigate some of the impacts of the safety measures we must all take in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and protect our family and friends.
