Texas Landlord Tenant Law

The Texas Landlord Tenant Law standardizes the landlord-tenant relationship. A landlord is the owner of a house or apartment, and the tenant is the person renting the house or apartment. The law requires both parties to sign a rental or lease agreement. This contract sets down the terms and conditions that both the landlord and the tenant must follow. Texas law puts down responsibilities for both the landlord and the tenant. These are as follows:

  1. The Landlord's responsibilities:
    a. Keep the property well-maintained and make repairs of conditions that may harm the health of the tenant
    b. Make the premises and property secure
    c. Inform the tenant of any changes in the property ownership
    d. Provide basic utilities like water, power and heat
    e. Maintain cleanliness in common areas
    f. Provide working smoke detectors within the property
    g. Make certain that the tenant is not engaging in any criminal activity
    h. Not discriminate against a tenant or refuse to rent the property on the basis of race, sex, gender or religion
  2. The Tenant's responsibilities:

    a. Pay the rent in a timely fashion
    b. Follow all city, county and state laws
    c. Keep the property clean
    d. Use the appliances properly, without causing undue damage
    e. Not disturb the other tenants
    f. Honor the lease agreement
    g. Not engage in any criminal or anti-social activities
    h. Leave the property in the same condition (except for normal wear and tear) as when he or she moved in
