My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of Texas:
Tenant signed a one year apartment lease and sent signed lease document to landlord. Tenant signed lease 7 month prior to lease term start date.
Lease document had designated places for both parties to sign (blanks for the tenant to sign/date and for the landlord to sign/date).
Landlord does not send counter-signed lease document to tenant (lease document signed by landlord).
4 months prior to lease term start date, tenant sends written notice to landlord revoking the offer to lease the apartment.
Does a lease require both parties to sign and send the signed lease to the other party? Is this a valid lease? If the tenant refuses to make lease payments and does not move in, how might the landlord enforce the lease?
