This landlord/tenant guide from the Texas A&M Real Estate Center is a very popular, go-to resource at the library. It is valuable to both lawyers and non-lawyers because it summarizes landlord/tenant laws in “plain English,” yet it also includes citations to the relevant Texas statutes. This revised 2014 edition covers new legislation from the most recent 83rd legislative session. Some of the topics it covers are the landlord’s duty to repair, security deposits, utility cutoffs, various tenants’ rights, and evictions. It also briefly covers commercial tenancies and self-service storage facilities.
