If a landlord is participating in rental assistance programs with a tenant, and an agreement has been made for payments

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: If a landlord is participating in rental
assistance programs with a tenant, and
an agreement has been made for
payments at a later date, does that
technically uphold a pending eviction
that has been filed?

Is this a state or federal rental assistance program?

Has the landlord filed a formal eviction case in court?

I’m working on behalf of the tenant. Yes the landlord has filed an eviction, but is working with the tenant as well.

Ok, then in every rental assistance program I have seen at the state or federal level, when the landlord agrees to participate, they also sign a document stating that they will not pursue eviction against a tenant until after all rental money is paid, often past and a couple of months future, and then only unless the tenant breaches again in the future.

So if this is like every other one I have seen, yes, it would prohibit the landlord from proceeding in court with any pending eviction..
