Renter Resources

Through education, communication, and legislation, the Rio Grande Valley Apartment Association (RGVAA) provides resources to rental housing owners and operators that assist them in developing and maintaining quality rental housing. In partnership with the Texas Apartment Association (TAA) and the National Apartment Association (NAA), RGVAA communicates regularly with our members about changes in city ordinances and requirements; state laws and regulations; and federal statutes and rules that govern rental property.

In most instances, resident and landlord disputes are based on provisions contained within a lease agreement. You are encouraged to carefully read, understand, and maintain a copy of your lease. Give special attention to lease paragraphs regarding lease term, rent amount, rent due dates, non-renewal notice, deposits, and maintenance requests.
