Partner Karen L. Hart authored the LexisNexis article “Commercial Eviction (TX).” In the piece, Hart explores the commercial eviction process in the state of Texas. The article delves into tenant notices, commercial lockouts, unlawful lockout claims and eviction suits, including prerequisites to filing forcible detainer actions and petitions for evictions. Hart also provides guidance to landlords so they can avoid violating the law and to tenants so they understand their rights. Hart explains, “Commercial leases can be long and difficult to follow. Default provisions, in particular, can be vexing to landlords, tenants and lawyers alike. The most important thing a landlord, tenant or lawyer for either can do is read the lease.”
