In Texas, a landlord can start the process to evict a tenant for not paying rent the very day after rent is due. But to evict, a proper Notice to Vacate must be sent. As a Landlord, Girling law has the experience you need on your side to ensure the property is back in your possession ready to make money for you. Call us before mistakes are made that will keep a non-paying tenant in the property longer than necessary!
Courts do not always see the Landlord as the party suffering the harm in a situation where a renter is not paying rent. Girling Law sees it from your side as Landlord, that you have a mortgage to pay, bills to pay, and we fight to ensure the property is back in your hands as soon as the law allows.
Litigation is not always the best solution! Girling Law has years of experience in negotiating with tenants who are in difficult situations. We always work to ensure that the cheapest alternatives are available to you by identifying creative solutions to get the property profitable again. But if litigation does become the answer, Girling Law will fight tooth and nail to protect your rights as Landlord!
