Here is the beauty of Texas. You don’t have to give them a reason. So you give them their non renewal. When they don’t move you give them a notice to vacate for holdover.

I am in Houston. Just give them day notice of non renewal based on your lease 30 or 60. I always mail it, certify and post on the door. If they ask why I explain that we are exercising our right to non renew them. Do not give them a reason.

Start with lease violations, 4 violations issue the non renewal. If they don't leave, you have grounds to evict for breach of contract and breach of community policies. Continue with violations as needed. The more you have the better chance you have to be granted possession.

I would give them a 60 day non-renewal. You can find the form on the TAA website.

Same as when you fire an employee in a right-to-work state. You just say, it's not working out. If you give any reasons at all it's trouble

Landlords have the right to enforce rule and regulations....don't be that person who doesn't

You don’t have to give a reason to non renew if you use the TAA lease. I’ve done it more than once. Just be sure to give them the proper notice as required on page one of the lease.

“Just as you have the right to give us notice to vacate at the end of your lease term, we have the same right. “

Our attorneys advise that while we don’t have to give a reason we better have one...especially for a protected class. We ensure we have legal notices to cure in the file and keep good documentation.

Send a letter of non renewal (your attorney should be able to send a template that complies with TX law, and let you know how much in advance it should be sent)... in Indiana, for instance, we have to let them know at least 30 days in advance (we typically give at least 60) and we are encouraged not to give a reason.
