: My question revolves around a late fee letter and intent to lock me out letter I received on my door today 8/6/99.
: It seems the apartment complex I live in has had a balance on my "account" since May for late fees on rent due. My bank records state my check was deposited on the 5th, which was a wednesday. The date on my check was for the 1st if that actually means anything.
: The letter states if I do not pay for these undefined late fees within 3 days (Monday 8/9/99 I guess), I will be locked out of my apartment.
: Does an apartment complex have to notify you at least once and especially before 3 months before they can attempt to lock you out of your home?
: I do not know how the laws differ from NY to TX (where I live BTW) but could use some words of advice or encouragement.
: Thanks in advance for any help

A quick check of the excellent well-written section on Texas on TenantNet Home, the Texas Tenant Advisor, says NO, but that might be only for subsidized housing. Suggest you read the whole thing carefully.
