Remember that tenants are jointly and singularly liable to ensure that the rent is paid. You must have written
permission from the property manager to substitute a roommate. (It is not the responsibility of Someday Realty and
Property Management, Inc. to arbitrate or mediate problems with multiple tenant situations.)
Q: Can I change the locks?
A: No! You cannot change the locks yourself. Re-keying the property without our permission is a serious lease violation and
against the law in Texas. Texas Law specifically forbids the tenants from locking out the landlord and the Courts & Judges
are not sympathetic to tenants who lock out the landlord.
All notices or requests by Tenant for rekeying, changing, installing, repairing, or replacing security devices must be
in writing. Installation of additional security devices or additional rekeying or replacement of security devices desired
by Tenant will be paid by the Tenant in advance and must be installed only by contractors authorized by our office.
Q: I am renting a home where the landlord supplied the refrigerator and the refrigerator broke down, who is responsible for the lost food; is the landlord or the tenants?
A: If the refrigerator is a responsibility of the landlord and clearly specified in the contract, then the landlord
needs to repair or replace the refrigerator. However, the landlord is not responsible for your food inside. If you
buy a refrigerator from Best Buy (with a 5 year warranty) and it malfunctions, would they pay for your food inside
Refrigerators break down, regardless of who owns them. If it was your refrigerator, you'd have to pay for the spoiled
food. If the unit stops working, it is your responsibility to find an alternative to store your food.
If you know your neighbors well enough to ask them to borrow some fridge/freezer space. Refrigerators make excellent
ice chests, buy some freezer-pack inserts and keep them frozen. Plan where you can buy some Dry Ice. Dry Ice is
particularly useful for freezing and keeping things frozen because of its very cold temperature of -109.3 F. Be sure
to take an ice chest to pick up the Dry Ice and use insulated gloves when handling Dry Ice. Your renters insurance
you may want to check with your insurance company to see if food spoilage is covered.
Q: Is there a military clause?
A: Yes. According to the TAR lease agreement if Tenant is or becomes a service member or a dependent of a service member,
Tenant may terminate this lease by delivering to Landlord a written notice of termination and a copy of an appropriate
government document providing evidence of:
- entrance into military service;
- military orders for a permanent change of station (PCS); or
- military orders to deploy with a military unit for not less than 90 days.
Termination is effective on the 30th day after the first date on which the next rental payment is due after the date
on which the notice is delivered. Section 92.017, Property Code governs the rights and obligations of the parties under
Q: I want to move out, but my roommate wants to stay. What do I do?
