Can I make my tenant pay late fees in an eviction case in Texas?

 

In general, you may not recover late fees in an eviction case in Texas because of the specific language the legislature decided to use in the eviction laws. Instead, you must bring an entirely separate suit for breach of contract against your tenant if you want to recover your late fees. You can, however, recover past-due rent in the same eviction lawsuit that you seek possession.
