Texas has three types of statutory landlord’s liens: agricultural, commercial building, and residential. The creation of the lien, the property to which it attaches, and the enforcement of the lien depend on the type of landlord’s lien in question. The purpose of landlord’s liens is to secure tenants’ lease compliance.
We’ll discuss each of these liens in greater detail in future posts.
