What are the renter’s rights in Austin?

Renters’ rights in Austin are fairly well protected, with the local Tenants Council promoting the right to safe, fair, affordable and decent housing for everyone. However, it’s best to do your homework and treat your lease agreement very seriously, as it may contain legal loopholes.

For example, landlords don’t need the express permission of the tenant to enter the unit at any time if this privilege is not specified in the contract. There’s also no law that limits the number of rent increases a landlord can impose. Finally, evictions can be carried out in as little as two weeks. Always double-check your contract before signing and make sure you’re clear on every point.
