Texas Rental Agreement Forms and Landlord Resources

Managing residential rentals is a serious undertaking that many Texas landlords and property managers find daunting. The complicated and often convoluted landlord and tenant laws are enough to drive the inexperienced owner or investor straight to the office of an expensive attorney. For example, are you aware that Houston landlords and property managers who own multi-unit dwellings are required to have the property inspected? Our Texas specific lease agreement is a comprehensive, attorney reviewed and approved lease complete with state assists which provides that information and more to help guide Texas landlords and property managers.

An iron-clad lease is just the beginning. We compliment the lease with Texas specific forms as well as generic forms to help you run your business as smoothly as possible. When you have questions about how to use those forms, you can ask one of our staff members in our LIVE chat, or you can post your questions about how to handle your noisy tenants or an MIA contractor in our FORUM.

Having problems printing your documents? Just click the help tab and then document printing help for step-by-step instructions. If there is ever a need to actually consult with an attorney, we have provided a directory for referrals to lawyers in Texas with whom you can meet. Once you’ve spoken with an attorney about a possible eviction, you’ll want to start screening new tenants. We’ve got you covered there as well. Check out our Tenant Screening service with special discounts for our premium members.

Texas Residential Lease Agreements

Texas Lease Our Texas state-specific lease reminds Texas landlords that no late fees can be charged when tenants pay their rent late except when the amount and details are expressed in a lease. That information is provided for Texas landlords via our state assists which can be found throughout the state-specific document. The state assists are just one of the many benefits landlords can take advantage of in our lease package. For example, when you find yourself in need of specific addenda and tenant notices, they’re included in your lease package. There are plenty more benefits we could share with you, but wouldn’t you rather begin creating your lease to see for yourself?

Should I Call My Tenant's Previous Landlords?
Posted November 28, 2016
Applicants for your rental property completed their forms, agreed to a background checked and showed you recent pay stubs to verify their income. You've met with them and have a good feeling in your gut. It's decision time, right? Well, not quite. You have a few more questions to ask before you should sign a lease with these applicants. But the answers are only a phone call away. Obtain your applicant's permission, and then reach out to current and former landlords and interview them. These people have, or had, a relationship with your applicant. Ask if the tenant pays or paid rent on time. Ask if they took care of the unit during their time there. Ask whether neighbors ever complained about the tenant.

The Accidental Landlord: Should We Try Renting Out Our Old House?
Posted November 14, 2016
Carrie Kirby and her family faced a tough choice when they left Chicago in 2012 to return to California. The Chicago Tribune columnist wrote about having to decide between selling her and her husband's Illinois home at a loss or becoming landlords. They chose the latter. Many homeowners confront this same scenario, as circumstances force a family to move. It could be landing a new job, searching for better schools or even inheriting a property. With the housing market beginning to pick up, many hope that selling the old house will be a snap, but the fear is that if it doesn't sell quickly, there will be two mortgages to pay.
