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.
