As federal eviction moratorium ends, new partnership kicks off to assist Ada County residents
Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today the Idaho Supreme Court has gone live on Tyler’s Modria® online dispute resolution (ODR) solution, beginning as a pilot program in Ada County, Idaho. With the goal of limiting homelessness in the state, Modria will assist the court in mitigating an influx of potential cases stemming from the end of the federal eviction moratorium, which is set to expire on July 31. This solution will help inform citizens needing help of the available programs to assist with rent relief once the moratorium ends.
The eviction moratorium is a federal guideline preventing the eviction of tenants unable to make rental payments through the legal court process if they meet certain eligibility requirements, including job-related, loss of income, or health-related issues. Once this expires at the end of July, the court is expecting an increase in volume of cases filed by landlords. By implementing Modria, the court will be able to manage potential caseloads and alert parties to available options for rent relief, allowing people to possibly avoid an eviction judgment and get caught up on past due rent through a federally funded program.
Tyler’s Modria solution helps resolve disputes, including landlord/tenant, without needing to appear in person in court, helping free up resources for the court and saving users time, money, and stress. Modria offers resources and communication tools necessary to facilitate resolution for these types of cases entirely online, while providing a fair and transparent process for all participants. If parties cannot solve their dispute online, they still have the option to appear before a judge.
“Increasing access to justice is a top priority for Tyler, especially as families continue to face hardships from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Jamie Gillespie, general manager of Tyler’s Modria solution. “We are optimistic that Modria will ease the burden on Ada County’s court system while providing the tools and resources to assist people in paying their rent. We hope to expand this solution to other parts of Idaho soon.”
