Tips for renting in Corpus Christi, TX
Ready to call the beautiful city of Corpus Christi your home? We bet you are! But first, let's take a minute to make you aware of some of the local tenant laws.
Once the lease period ends, your landlord is legally able to increase rent as much as they see fit – Texas doesn't have rent control laws. If they plan on raising the rent though, they must give you the same amount of notice as you'd have to give if you were moving out, generally 30 days.
If the landlord fails to make needed repairs during your time there, you can't withhold rent like in some places. If you do, this would give the landlord the right to evict you.
