Resources for Tenants

For a landlord in Texas to remove you from your home, they must go through a formal legal proceeding to receive something called a “writ of possession.” This is a law suit filed in the Justice of the Peace Court for the precinct where you live. But before they can file that law suit, state law requires that certain notices be given to you.
