TEXAS SECURITY DEPOSITS

Before returning a security deposit, a Texas landlord may deduct from the deposit damages and charges for which the tenant is legally liable under the lease or as a result of breaching the lease. 

The landlord may not retain any portion of a security deposit to cover normal wear and tear. See our Normal Wear and Tear Guide.

If the landlord retains all or part of a security deposit, the landlord shall give to the tenant in Texas the balance of the security deposit, if any, together with a written description and itemized list of all deductions. 

The landlord is not required to give the tenant a description and itemized list of deductions if: 

(1) the tenant owes rent when he surrenders possession of the premises; 

(2) there is no controversy concerning the amount of rent owed.
