Landlords in all states, including Texas, are required by federal law to include essential elements in their rental agreements, in particular: the tenant can terminate this lease without causing harm to the tenant if the property is not damaged, which is not caused by negligence or intentional act of the tenant or that of the tenant`s visitors if the lessor decides not to rebuild or repair damaged goods n. by appropriate and timely notification. The Texas lease applies a written contract that explains the interior of the transaction with a property for rent for a specified period. A potential tenant will usually enter into an agreement with a landlord after the first acceptance of a rental application. The documents provide each of the participants with substantial proof of the commitments to be met during the term of the rental agreement. . . .
