Check Out My Educational Video – Why Landlords Must Name All Tenants in an Eviction Suit
Texas Rule of Civil Procedure 510.3(c) requires Landlords to NAME as Defendants (and SERVE) all tenants named in the Lease.
Reliance on the language “and all occupants” is not good enough.
When the Landlords fails to name a Tenant identified in the lease as a defendant in an eviction suit, that suit is usually dismissed.
With the help of talented actors / property managers and an outlandish costume, this principle is presented in a humorous skit.
Although we had fun, the legal point is a serious and important one.
