Apartments Disputes: Counseling and Other Options When You Have Issues With Your Apartment

Have a dispute about your apartment you need to resolve? The Austin Tenants’ Council provides a free telephone counseling service that can help you.

The Telephone Counseling Line provides education and information regarding residential tenant-landlord disputes. Lines are busy, and callers are encouraged to keep trying. Phones are answered by trained housing counselors who offer options, refer callers to other agencies, or suggest legal assistance through Legal Aid, lawyer referral services, etc. The counselors can discuss tenant-landlord rights and responsibilities as described in the Texas Property Code and other sources. However, no attorneys are on staff and ATC counselors cannot offer legal advice. Anyone needing legal advice should contact an attorney.

Eligibility: Telephone counseling services are available to Travis County residents. Out-of-town callers will be assisted if resources are available.

Fees: No charge.

Procedures: Call 474-1961 to speak to a housing counselor. The telephone counseling line is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
