New Mexico Supreme Court Suspends Evictions of Tenants of Residential Properties  

Effective March 24, 2020, the New Mexico Supreme Court (“Court”) issued an Order that stays the execution of any writ of restitution that has been issued pursuant to the New Mexico Owner Resident Relations Act (“Act”) for the non-payment of rent. Further, the Order stays all applicable deadlines for appealing a writ of restitution. All other provisions of the Act shall remain unaffected by the terms of the Order. This stay is effective until modified or withdrawn by Order of the Court. The Act governs residential landlord-tenant relations, so this Order does NOT apply to commercial leases.
