Protection Against Eviction

If your monthly rent is $3,991.90 (2020 Standard) or less per month, your landlord may not evict you or your dependents from a home that is used primarily as a residence during a period of military duty without a court order.

The SCRA specifically states that the amount will increase yearly based on the housing price inflation adjustment, as published in the federal register each January.

If an eviction is filed against you or one of your dependents, the court must temporarily stay the proceedings or adjust the amount of your financial obligation if you can show that you have been unable to meet your financial obligations under the lease because of your military service. 50 USC App 3951.
