I moved you to Landlord & Tenant.
You can access all Texas statutes at https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/
A condition such as you describe could affect the physical health and safety of an ordinary tenant. To resolve such conditions, you have to comply with the landlord/tenant provisions in Chapter 92 of the Texas Property Code (all further statutory references are to that Code).
You cannot simply declare that you are fed up and move out. If you do, the landlord could declare you in default of the lease, accelerate all the remaining payments, and sue you for all the rent remaining under your lease, court costs, and attorney’s fees.
For the condition you describe, a landlord is required to make repairs or remedy the condition. To start that process under the Landlord/Tenant provisions of § 92.056, the tenant must provide written notice of the condition and request repairs. You should hand deliver the notice and also send it by certified or priority mail. If the landlord still does not address/resolve the condition after a reasonable time or make a diligent effort to do so, you have to send a second notice. If the landlord still does not resolve the condition or make diligent efforts to do so within a reasonable time, you can: (1) terminate the lease; (2) remedy the condition and hold the landlord accountable for the cost; OR (3) pursue one of the other remedies set out in § 92.056.
Take pictures, make notes, and keep copies of all documents.
Questions about landlord/tenant issues can be found in two publications: (1) the Texas Tenant Rights prepared by the Texas Attorney General. That guide can be downloaded at https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/cpd/tenant-rights; and (2) the Tenants’ Rights Handbook you can download from https://texaslawhelp.org/article/tenants-rights-handbook. There is no charge for these publications. Neither of these publications is a substitute for advice from an attorney.
