Title: rental agreement
Post by: Austin01 on July 22, 2004, 02:27:04 pm
I am new in rental business.

I am seeking advice where do I get or buy  a copy of standard  Apartment lease contract?
I read somewhere about Texas Apartment Association having the lease contract format that I could use?

Hope someone will help me .
Thank you,

I got a book from the Library called Texas Lanlord Tennant Laws.
It was pretty up to date and has all the contracts and forms in it that you need, and it's FREE !  I hope this help.

Howdy Austin01:

You are not supposed to use the TAA form unless you are a TAA member.  Most bigger management companies are members. I was never a member and used their forms all the time. Been to court on many evictions and was never asked if I was a card carrying member of TAA. I do not think the police care either if I was a member of TAA. TAA will not sell you a copy of their precious forms but I bet you can get one some where from a friend or Realtor or a management company.  They do spend some big bucks on writing the forms but they get big fees too. I feel they should make them available to all landlors to help cover their costs. Any way enough preaching for tonight. Hope I do not get arrested tonight for using the TAA forms 5 years ago.
