    Renter's guide to Richardson, TX

    Welcome to Richardson! This Texas city is perhaps best known as the home of the University of Texas at Dallas, one of the best colleges in the country. But Richardson offers a lot more than that.

    In fact, Livability.com named it one of the best 100 cities to live in 2015, and Niche.com considers it the 9th best suburb of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro for 2017.

    At just half the size of nearby Garland, it’s certainly not the largest city. In fact, Dallas is nearly 30 times bigger than Richardson! But Dallas is just 13 miles from Richardson and Fort Worth is 41 miles, meaning big city amenities are just a short trip away.

    Richardson has four distinct seasons, with August being the hottest month, when average lows are 77⁰F and average highs are 96⁰F. The coldest month, January, fluctuates from around 37⁰F to 57⁰F.

    Unfortunately, the area around Dallas is part of “Tornado Alley” and has one of the highest severe weather risks in the country. But with 230 sunny days and just 57 days of precipitation per year, the weather is usually quite pleasant, if a little warm.

    Tips for renting in Richardson, TX

    Ready to pack your bags for Richardson? Before you go, let’s take a quick look at some of the local tenant laws, to make sure you’re up to speed.

    Texas doesn’t place any limits on the amount of the deposit a landlord can ask for, but they do require that they return it within 30 days of your move-out date. And if the landlord fails to do so, you can take them to small claims court.

    In Richardson, you have a “quiet enjoyment” right, which prevents both your landlord and other tenants from disturbing your stay with things like intrusions or noise. If you’re having trouble with noisy neighbors, let your landlord know. But that goes both ways, so you’ll want to keep it down on your end too.
