    Default Texas Statute of Limitation

    My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Texas
    What is the statute of limitation for suing a tenant for damages they agreed to fix before moving out but didn't?

    Default Re: Texas Statute of Limitation

    It's 4 years for breach of contract. It's 2 years for property damage.

    How long ago did the tenant move out?
    How long do you plan on waiting until you do something?

    A word of advice from a former landlord. Never let tenants do anything to your house. They'll either do a crappy job or won't do it at all.

    If they leave damage, you fix it and take it out of their deposit. If damage exceeds the deposit you file suit.
