My question involves an eviction in the state of: Texas.
My husband and I have filed eviction papers for tenants of our rental house for non-payment of rent. The court date is May 6th. We went by there today and it looks as though the tenants have moved out, although there is still some stuff in the house - mostly trash, but they may not have finished moving out. HOWEVER, there is water all over the kitchen floor and the living room carpet is soaked. What do we do? I don't want to wait until the court date to clean it up and prevent mold growth. Do we have to post an abandonment letter or can we move the rest of their stuff out and fix whatever is the problem? It does not look like water is running, but there is plenty on the floor.
