Landlord's guide to leasing a property

The San Antonio Board of REALTORS® has created a comprehensive guide to help landlords in the main aspects of renting their property. The objective of this guide is to provide common standards for renting a property that will assist a landlord to stay within the bounds of the law. This guide is not a replacement for legal assistance and its usage does not ensure a landlord is protected from violating a fair housing law.

Property Management and Fair Housing

The U.S. Fair Housing Act and Texas Fair Housing Act protect people from housing discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, and familial status. In addition, renters may have additional fair housing rights under local ordinances. For San Antonio residents, additional protections include marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, source of income for veterans, and status as a student.
