Study Finds Providing Legal Information to Tenants Facing Eviction Decreased Unfavorable Eviction Outcomes
A new study from researchers at Tulane University and Jane Place Neighborhood Sustainability Initiative, “Eviction Court Outcomes and Access to Procedural Knowledge: Evidence from a Tenant-Focused Intervention in New Orleans,” examines whether access to knowledge about eviction court procedures affected tenants’ eviction case outcomes. Information about the eviction process was distributed through the Tenant Early Eviction Notification System (TEENS), an outreach program aimed at better protecting tenants facing eviction. Analysis then found that tenants who were contacted with eviction procedure information had a 13% lower probability of receiving a “rule absolute judgement” compared to tenants who were not contacted. Direct contact with tenants through phone calls and in-person canvassing was the most effective means of decreasing unfavorable eviction rulings.
