Alexandria, VA – Courts, which have been largely closed since early April, are reopening and will begin to catch up on the backlog of dockets.

Some eviction and foreclosure proceedings postponed during the closure may resume as soon as June 16.

A number of resources are available for Alexandrians who are facing eviction and foreclosure, including short-term emergency rental assistance through the COVID-19 Emergency Rent Relief Assistance Program.

The General Assembly also passed legislation earlier this year that gives tenants and property owners an additional 60-day continuance of an eviction or foreclosure proceeding, if they provide proof to the courts that their income has been adversely affected by COVID-19.
