Center for Community Research & Service; Biden School of Public Policy & Administration, University of Delaware
As evictions increase nationwide, more attention has focused on equity concerns and protections for tenants in the court eviction process. Eviction rates are particularly high in Delaware. The Princeton Eviction Lab estimates the state’s eviction rate (evictions per renter household) to be 5.1%, about 2 points higher than the national average, and the state’s annual eviction filing rate (eviction filings per renter household) to be 16%. On an average day, 14 evictions are filed in Delaware courts.
