Procedures for Notice or Refund
Except as provided in Subsection (b), a landlord is presumed to have given notice of an applicant’s acceptance or rejection if the notice is by:
telephone to the applicant, co-applicant, or a person living with the applicant or co-applicant on or before the required date; or
United States mail, addressed to the applicant and postmarked on or before the required date.
If a rental applicant requests that any acceptance of the applicant or any refund of the applicant’s application deposit be mailed to the applicant, the landlord must mail the refund check to the applicant at the address furnished by the applicant.
If the date of required notice of acceptance or required refund of an application deposit is a Saturday, Sunday, or state or federal holiday, the required date shall be extended to the end of the next day following the Saturday, Sunday, or holiday.Added by Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 744, Sec. 5, eff.
