We designed the Texas Landlord Lawyers eviction notice form generator for Texas landlords and independent rental owners alike. Our Notice to Vacate generator instantaneously delivers to you a sleek, intimidating Notice to Vacate on our firm’s letterhead – all for FREE!
Warning: Texas law requires you to use a 3 Day Notice to Vacate unless you and your tenant have a written lease agreement that permits you to use a 24 Hour Notice to Vacate. Other circumstances may require a longer Notice to Vacate. You should consult a licensed Texas attorney to better understand these circumstances. All TAA leases and Texas Realtor’s Association leases permit 24 Hour Notices to Vacate. But if you have a different type of lease, you need to review the section of your lease that discusses the tenant’s default. Should your lease not mention a 24 hour notice to vacate, Texas law may require you to sue a 3 Day Notice to Vacate.
Serve your tenant with a Texas eviction notice form printed on an aggressive Texas eviction attorney’s letterhead.
We designed the Texas Landlord Lawyers eviction notice form generator specifically for independent rental owners. Our Notice to Vacate generator instantaneously delivers to you a sleek, intimidating Notice to Vacate on our firm’s letterhead – FREE of charge.
Why Use a Texas Landlord Lawyers Eviction Notice Form?
Intimidation. Think about your Notices to Vacate from your tenant’s perspective. Your misbehaving tenant comes home, closes her door, and finds another corporate form letter with handwritten entries from your Texas landlord’s management office. Or, perhaps, you’re an independent rental owner, and you give your tenant a handwritten or typed letter demanding that the tenant leave the property. Your document reads “Notice to Vacate” across the top of a dull, plane-Jane piece of photocopy paper. Your tenant shrugs, balls up your letter, and tosses it in the trash. She’s received three similar letters in the past. She knows the routine.
Now compare your tenant’s reaction when she finds the same notice from an eviction attorney, AND the letter includes some “legalese” on it. “Uh-oh…” she thinks to herself. “My landlord hired a lawyer!?! That’s an entirely different ballgame!”
Compliance. The Notice to Vacate presents numerous opportunities for a Judge to dismiss your eviction lawsuit. Girling Law’s Notice to Vacate generator produces a Notice to Vacate that meets all of the content requirements under Texas law, protects you from unwittingly violating various other laws, and provides instructions on properly delivering your Notice to Vacate.
Wording on your Notice to Vacate is crucial. Your Notice to Vacate can create problems during an eviction trial if it is not worded correctly. On the other hand, if your Notice to Vacate contains too much information, you could restrict your options later on in the eviction process.
Ensuring compliance with various collection laws can be another issue. A Notice to Vacate is a debt collection activity under Texas consumer protection laws. You should always include something lawyers refer to as the “mini-Miranda” language in the notice. What happens if your tenant files bankruptcy between the time you send your Notice to Vacate and when your tenant receives it? Your Notice to Vacate should include language that ensures you do not violate an automatic bankruptcy stay. If your tenant is a member of the armed services, your Notice to Vacate needs to have particular language. This is true even if your tenant recently joined the military and neglected to tell you!
And then there is the delivery process. Texas law is particular about how a Notice to Vacate is delivered to your tenant. Giving the Notice to Vacate incorrectly can result in your case being dismissed. Failing to deliver the Notice to Vacate correctly is the most frequent reason Texas Justices of the Peace dismiss landlords’ eviction lawsuits. The delivery instructions included with your Notice to Vacate, if followed, will significantly reduce or eliminate the risk associated with delivering your Notice to Vacate.
