How to Handle Requests for Repairs:

What must I do exactly in order to obtain repairs from my landlord?

Ask him / her (in writing if specified by the lease). Remember that your rent must be paid up-to-date.

I've asked my landlord to make repairs, but she has not done so. What do I do?

Write a letter to the landlord and / or manager that includes the following:

• Date

• Repair problem

• Whether the problem is a threat to health / safety

• Deadline for repairs to begin (5 days is considered reasonable. In the case of an emergency -- 24 hours)

• Signature

The letter should be hand delivered to the landlord (Bring a witness along) or sent to the landlord by both regular or Certified mail, or Return Receipt Requested mail. Keep a copy of this letter.

When the deadline given is exceeded without the landlord making a diligent effort to make repairs, tenant should write a second and final notice including:

• Date

• Repair problem

• Whether the problem is a threat to your health / safety

• Notice that unless the repairs are made in seven days, the tenant will:

1. take legal action under the Texas Property Code to enforce repairs and recover damages; or

2. terminate the lease and move; or

3. exercise rights to repair and deduct if repairs are not made; or

4. a request for a written explanation for the delay in making the repair.

Again, the letter should be hand delivered to the landlord (Bring a witness along) or sent to the landlord by both regular or Certified mail, or Return Receipt Requested mail. Keep a copy of this letter. Click here for more information on Tenant Remedies for Non-Repair.

Can't I simply deduct the cost of repairs from my rent instead of waiting for a response from the landlord?

No. Renters should never withhold rent because repairs have not been made. You risk eviction and may forfeit all rights to have repairs made. Commercial renters have different rights, however, and should consult an attorney.

What do I do if my landlord ignores my request for repairs?

If both letters are ignored without the landlord making a diligent effort to make repairs, you may -- under the Texas Property Code:

• Vacate the unit and still be entitled to a refund of the security deposit (as long as there is no damage to the unit beyond the usual wear and tear) and a refund of the rent for the remainder of the month after you leave in accordance with the law

• Take the landlord to Justice, County, or District Court where an order may be issued:

o Directing the landlord to make repairs (available only in County and District Courts)

o Granting partial rent reduction

o Awarding tenant one month's rent plus $500.00

o Awarding the tenant money for actual damages, reasonable attorney's fees, and court costs
