How Much Can Landlords Charge for Application Fees in Texas?

Landlords in Texas can charge as much as they want when it comes to rental application fees.

Texas has no legal limits for application fees. That being said, most fees fall between $15-50.1 If a potential landlord is charging you much more than that, consider negotiating or even looking elsewhere for a rental—application fees are supposed to cover the cost of background and credit checks, not serve as a source of income.
