My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Texas
I want to become a lodger in my parents' home in order to give myself tenant's rights.
Besides paying rent, typing up and signing a lease agreement, is there anything else that needs to be done? Will I have all the same rights as a tenant?
Specifically, I am doing this for my privacy. So if I were to include in the lease agreement that I alone have the right to enter and grant permission for others to enter my space, would this legally protect me from having my dad (who is the owner of the home and would be my landlord) or any other residents of the house enter or grant others permission to enter my space?
Thanks for your help.
