  • How long does the landlord have to advice tennant of remaining fees

    In the state of Texas, how long does a landlord have to advice a tennant after they have broken a lease agreement to notify them of owed/remaining fees? I had to break my lease due to transfer of a job. I adviced the landlord what the situation was and gave them my forwarding address. However I have not heard from them and its been over a month. I heard somewhere they have 30 days to contact the tenant of the fees owed or the landlord forfeits the fees the ex-tenant owes. Am I correct?

    I wish to inform you that a landlord must return the tenant's security deposit within 30 days after the tenant has moved out. Further within 30 days landlord can give a letter stating losses where security deposit has been adjusted. If 30 days have passed then landlord cannot adjust security deposit with loss caused.

      Thank you for your response. I know I owe a reletting fee and 2 months rent for abruptly terminating my lease and I adviced them to send me my total of what I owe to my forwarding address which I provided. Again just to confirm it has been more then 30 days and I have yet to receive a statement from them. Does this mean the landlord forfeits any money I may owe them?

        There is no limit on the amount of time required to notify a tenant of move-out amounts due. The 30-days you're thinking of are strictly related to security deposits, in that the LL has 30 days to assess damages and return any remaining security deposits after deductions, or an accounting of how the security deposit was spent. However, if there is no security deposit involved here, then there is no specific time limit, except what would be considered reasonable.

        At the very least, unless you paid an early termination fee, you will be liable for the unpaid rent until a new tenant is found to replace you, or the end of the lease, whichever occurs first. If you haven't paid anything, then that amount will continue to accrue until you do.
