Is a landlord in Texas obligated to fix foundation issues?

It will depend upon a few factors that would determine whether the foundation issue is a threat to the tenant's physical health and safety or otherwise prevent the use and enjoyment of your lease.
The above statements are provided as general information and not intended as legal advice. Each matter has its own set of unique circumstances that cannot be adequately addressed without consultation. You are strongly advised to hire an attorney licensed to practice law in your state to represent you.
Might be a fact issue, depending how 'unlivable' the condition renders your building.
Put landlord on notice that you will immediately try to vacate the lease through the courts.
