Urgency: no status. However, federal law gives landlords the right to go to an inhabited rental property in an emergency (without notice). If the monthly rent is not delivered up to a full day after the due date, a late payment fee can only be levied if the rental agreement contains a specific instruction regarding a fee schedule. Late fees may include introductory late fees and subsequent daily late fees for additional days (§ 8.92.019). Sublease Agreement – A form used for the introduction of a second tenant into an apartment already rented – allows the original tenant to evacuate legally. The original tenant remains responsible for the recovery of the rent by the new tenant and the guarantee that the property remains free of any damage. Rent laws prohibit subletting without prior consent. The monthly lease in Texas, often referred to as an «agreement lease,» allows a person to rent a unit without a given end date. The law requires the landlord to inform the tenant in writing that he or she may terminate the lease prematurely in special circumstances such as sexual abuse, sexual assault or domestic violence. . .
