HB 1964 Leaves Texas Tenants High and Dry
Cheaters should never win. But tomorrow, the Texas House will debate legislation that would let cheating landlords off the hook.
Under Texas law, landlords are not allowed to profit from water and can only pass along the actual cost of the utility to their tenants. When scamming landlords are caught hiking up these charges, tenants can band together and hold them accountable in court. There’s strength in numbers, allowing individual tenants to stand up to large, out-of- state apartment management companies.
