Who is responsible for mold in a Texas rental home?

Landlord-tenant laws in Texas ascribe the duty to remove conditions that materially affect the health or safety of a tenant to the landlord. However, tenants must not have defaulted on rent, not caused the problem, and must report the problem to the landlord in writing.

Tenants must ensure to keep their homes in habitable conditions. Cleanliness and proper ventilation help to keep mold from forming in a home.
