Galveston Apartment Lease are typically pretty straight forward documents when you are dealing with large apartment complexes.  The reason most apartments will use a similar lease is to protect themselves from the liability of not being up to date on local, state and federal housing regulations.

Obviously like in real estate not all contracts are created equal, the terms will always vary slightly, the price will vary greatly, but most of the verbiage will stay the same, this is meant to protect the property owner, or seller.  Typically contracts are not designed to protect the buyer or renters interest, but rather the seller or property owners interest.  Most places that you choose to rent at will already have pre-written contract, that are essentially take it or leave it, most Galveston apartment managers or Galveston property managers will not accept contract they are not familiar with.  There may be a few things you can negotiate on, but for the most part do not expect a lot of control over the lease agreement.

Most large apartments are members of a variety of Apartment Associations such as the:  National Apartment Association, the Texas Apartment Association or the Houston Apartment Association.  Many of these associations provide apartments with up to date lease agreements, rental statistics and much more.  For an example of a Texas Lease Application please download or view this PDF from the Texas Apartment Association.

Texas Tenant Laws:  The relationship between Texas landlords and their tenants is governed by several statutes, particularly Chapter 92 of the Texas Property Code, and by various court rulings. However, the most important source of information about your relationship with your landlord is your rental agreement, whether it is written or oral.  Read more on the Texas Attorney Generals website.

Here's the truth, we live in a legalistic society, in America 1 in 300 people are lawyers, if you are concerned about your lease contract, or about rental policies, your best bet might be to acquire a legal services membership.  The company Legal Shield offers nationwide legal memberships for as little as $16 per month, you will be amazed at what services you receive for only $16 month.  We can put you in contact with the Galveston Legal Services Sales Associate if you are interested, please contact us for this information.

Real Estate agents are not lawyers, or attorneys, so we always recommend that you have access to your own legal council.
