RHSP Stipulation and Dismissal Forms

PROGRAM CLOSES DECEMBER 22, 2020 at 4:30pm

If you have a pending Eviction Case, you can participate in a RHSP Program by submitting a Stipulation, W-9, and Direct Deposit Form to the VSHA.  Please contact us to obtain a copy of the Stipulation form. 

If you have a pending Court case and the tenant is not being responsive and you wish to receive 100% of the rent, there is a Motion to Dismiss form that you can submit to the VSHA for full payment, along with the W-9, and Direct Deposit Form.  The Motion to Dismiss also is filed with the court in your court case.  

These two sets of forms are submitted a bit differently than the regular RHSP.  If you are interested in using this process, please email us (info@vtlandlord.com) and we will give you submission instructions.

Court Eviction Status - 12/22/2020

The Legislature passed S.333, which created a temporary stay on all eviction actions in the State of Vermont.  The end of the stay tracks the State of Emergency, and will end 30 days after the end of the State of Emergency.

Currently (as of 12/22/2020) the State of Emergency is through January 15, 2021 which means that the eviction stay will end on February 15, 2021.  If the State of Emergency is extended, the stay will also be extended.

The stay does not prevent you from sending termination notices to your tenants or from filing with the court.  Once a case is filed with the court, it is automatically stayed until the date described above.

If you have questions on sending a termination notice or regarding the eviction status, please call us at 802-985-2764.
