Tenant Eviction Process in Texas

The eviction process in the state of Texas has four steps, and professional property managers can take care of all the surrounding issues regarding evictions. The first is the notice to vacate, and the second is actually filing the suit. Third, you will go to court before finally getting the writ of possession.

Notice to Vacate

Changing locks gives you and new tenants peace of mind because you never know when previous tenants turned in all the keys or possibly made copies.

Filing the Suit

Appliances in an apartment or rental unit might need maintenance, repairs, or even replacement.

Heading to Court

Dents, scratches, and small holes might happen from furniture and artwork and are easy to patch. Bigger holes might need more work before a fresh coat of paint.

Writ of Possession

Anything from testing detectors to checking water pressure and the plumbing drains are easier to do when tenants aren't around.

Skipping any step or trying to speed things up can be a violation of the tenant's rights. That will cause the courts to rule against you and possibly get you into serious legal trouble of your own. Since this process is so detailed with many legal points and technicalities, it can be much easier to leave this in the hands of eviction professionals who will make sure to follow all local laws and regulations.

Tenants do have the right to appeal, and that can add more time to the eviction process. This is another area where we can help you on top of the fact that we can sometimes create positive outcomes without going to court. Some tenants who are in violation of their lease agreement are still willing and able to come to a mutually beneficial arrangement for all parties involved. This is something we have experience in handling for our clients.

How Long Does the Eviction Process Take in Texas?

It takes roughly three weeks for the entire eviction process to take place in Texas.

Why Choose Keyrenter Houston for Rental Eviction Assistance?

Houston, Texas laws don't require you to hire professional tenant eviction services, but doing so means you can step aside from a messy situation and leave it in the hands of capable industry experts.

Steer Clear of Legalities

Overlooking just one part of the whole eviction process can help tenants or even get you in legal trouble of your own. An eviction process can take a lot of your energy and time, but just learning all the details and aspects of all of this can also wear you down.

Enjoy Your Free Time

Rental property should be easy income. Most of the time, you might get to enjoy a hands-off stream of money flowing in every month. Then again, an eviction situation with one tenant can eat up all your time and spill over into your private life or even keep you too occupied to deal with your remaining tenants.

Bypass the Stress

Tenant eviction is never fun. The details can drive you mad, whether you know them yet or not. Professionals mean peace of mind for you and your family. Enjoy the revenue your property generates, and let someone else handle protecting it.

Be Safe

Tenants going through an eviction process might wind up lashing out, destroying property, and even getting violent. Don't let them intimidate or threaten you by having someone else deal with them.

Avoid Escalation

Professional eviction experts know how to handle difficult situations with a delicate touch, sometimes producing a positive outcome. Our ability to settle things out of court can sometimes mean good endings to bad situations. This can mean faster resolution so you get a paying tenant faster, and skipping court fees makes it all cheaper, too.
