Does all the tenant who would be occupying the property have to sign the lease agreement in the state of Texas?
I have a potential tenant who will be living with her son. Mother is responsible for paying the rent. Is there a clause or TREC requirements that both mother and son has to sign the lease agreement?
Note: I'm (landlord) is talking directly with tenant agent and the agent is saying only primary applicant (i.e. Mother) is require/responsible to sign the lease agreement.
There is no legal requirement as to who should sign the lease. In fact, you do not even have to have a lease.
Should you require all adults to sign the lease.....Absolutely. I want every adult to be subject to all the rules and regulation set forth in the lease agreement. I would be very interested to know what your agent's reasoning is ?
