many similar rules and principles do apply to mobile home lot tenants, there are many other rules that are not mentioned in this handbook that protect these tenants. For example, your lot landlord must offer you an initial lease term of at least six months. Regardless of the term of your lease, the landlord must generally provide you 60 days’ notice before the lease expires if she is not going to renew it. However, if the landlord chooses not to renew a lease agreement because of a change in the land use, she must give you 180 days’ notice before the change in land use. Also, if you are behind in rent and your landlord wants to evict you for this, she has to give you written notice of the delinquency, and you have ten days from that notice to pay your delinquent rent and avoid eviction. In addition, if a judge rules against you in an eviction case, the judge may not issue a writ of possession (to remove your mobile home from the lot) before the 30th day after the date of the judgment if you pay the rent amount due for that 30-day period. These rules and more are described in Chapter 94 of the Texas Property Code which you may find at a public library or online at http://tlo2.tlc.state.tx.us/statutes/pr.toc.htm. Another online resource for mobile home lot tenants can be found at http://www.texaslawhelp.org.
