If he is the owners representative then you will deal with him. Without a lease the owner/landlord/manager can pretty much do as they wish.

Good luck.

You can find the owner with a search of http://www.dallascad.org

No lawyers yet but simply reading your lease is a good start - what does it say?

Probably has a notice period to leave...just make sure new digs are lined up first!

Hello, if you had representation from a professional real estate agent when you leased the home, you may want to speak with that person to see how they can assist you. Otherwise, the Texas Real Estate Commission may be able to assist you with this matter. However; you may want to check your lease, because it "might" state that the lease will be month-to-month after the first year or other terms.
