Appropriate treatment of renters by apartment managers has long been a concern for good apartment owners.
Today's 50th Anniversary Friday Post takes you back in time to 1971,
and captures members’ concerns with the Texas Apartment Association's
lease. The document was revolutionary, in that, it acted as a
compromise between what owners wanted, and what residents believed they
should have. The lease placed HAA in the role of the “conscience of
the apartment industry.” It stood to protect both renters and owners
throughout their tenancy with an equitable rental agreement.
The vision of the industry leaders at the time was to "make Houston an
oasis of freedom for apartment owners by acknowledging that residents
are entitled to something more than four walls and a door when they
were to move into an apartment." The TAA Lease did just that. Today an updated version is used by thousands of property managers state wide.
