home rentals

So, you think you want to rent a house in Texas? If you do than there a few key items you need to be aware of:

1- Texas is a "landlord" state. What I mean is that the standard lease contracts are skewed to protecting the landlord.

2- Acceptance is not a guarantee. There will be requirements.

3- You are responsible for insidental home maintenance. There is no apartment maintenance man to call to change the AC filter or replace a burnt out lightbulb.
