Needing Repairs

by | Jun 30, 2011 | Renter's Rights, Renting 101 | 0 comments

When your apartment needs repairs, it is not legal to withhold rent money until the repairs are made. The Texas Apartment Association gives this explanation.

Can you stop paying rent until a repair is made?

No. Texas law prohibits “rent strikes” or withholding rent in order to force repairs. There are other remedies in the law to encourage property owners to make repairs.
