Relating to remedies after certain casualty losses to residential rental premises.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 3564 would make several changes to law regarding the rights and responsibilities of tenants and landlords after a casualty loss (a type of tax loss that is a sudden, unexpected, or unusual event), including: setting out methods of delivery for a written notice to terminate a residential lease if the premises becomes unusable; entitling a tenant to certain refunds for a lease terminated under applicable circumstances; and authorizing either party to file suit if the landlord and tenant are unable to agree on whether the tenant is entitled to a rent reduction or on the amount of the proposed reduction, among other things.
Texas Action is neutral on HB 3564 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
