The Texas standard residential lease agreement is a form that allows a property manager to enter into a binding relationship with a tenant in regard to residential property. The length of the agreement is typically one (1) year although a longer fixed term can be drafted into the agreement if both parties agree. After a tenant has shown interest in a property, the landlord should check the tenant’s credit, background, and employment and rental references to see if they are qualified for a lease. If approved, the tenant will be presented with the agreement and the terms and conditions will be explained before both parties sign the contract, making it legally binding.
