My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: TEXAS
We are a married couple in our 30's with a 5 year old son, 1 dog and a kitten.
I hate apartment complex, I don't like neighbor all up in our business, telling us how to live our lives and butting in. Over a year ago, we rented a 2 bedroom single-family home. It's has a small fenced back yard, perfect for a bar-b-q on the weekends.
I have several neighbors, who I never see, only the ones next to us.
Our next door neighbors are old retired and I'm pretty sure one is sick.
We are self employed and have a few employees working for us. Pay day is on Fridays, we pay our employees at our house around 5:30 p.m. We are usually outside for about 2 hours 3 the most. While my husband is paying up,my son plays soccer, we have a couple of cold beers and listen to music. My neighbors like to sit outside on a Friday only to complain on us. They constantly call the police, twice a day before 6 p.m. It feels like they do on purpose because they just don't like us. I don't feel like we are rowdy or our music is too loud. We are not out there until 1 a.m, and throw parties all night long! During the week you could barely hear a peep out of us!
I confronted our neighbor and asked him if he had a problem with us and his responds was "GET OUT OF MY PROPERTY" (I was standing outside the fence) I'M GOING TO MAKE YOUR LIFE MISERABLE UNTIL YOU MOVE OUT" he also said "YOU DON'T HAVE ANY RIGHT HERE, YOU ARE ONLY A RENTER"
I want to know if he's correct.
This make me mad, They need to stop harassing my family and mind their own business. If I feel like drinking a beer after work in the afternoon with my husband, I feel like I have the right too.
I love bar-b q's I the summer time, and playing with my son outside, why do I have to walk on egg shell with these old complaining people with no life.
