Can Tenant stay longer after eviction court?

1 Reply

I've been trying to remove these people for a long time now. The constable served them finally and we have court on the 25th. The lease expires in July, with so many tenant rights and the judge tends to be more on the tenant side will some kind of loophole pop up that might grant them more time? i'm not sure when the 30 days actually begins? this is my first rental in Texas any advice is appreciated.

On 25th there will be a hearing by the judge and the judge will give a judgment, if the tenants do not show up to court, you get default judgment. If they do show up and the judgment is against the tenants you can file eviction. The tenant has the right to file paupers affidavit to extend the case for a bit longer.
