The Bed Bug Addendum (TAR 2013) is a new form created for the exclusive use of Texas REALTORS®. Property managers can use it with the existing Residential Lease (TAR 2001) to set forth policies and a tenant’s responsibilities if bed bugs are discovered on the property.

The addendum covers the condition of the property and the tenant’s personal belongings, the notice required of a tenant should bed bugs be suspected, what the tenant must do if the presence of bed bugs is confirmed, and the tenant’s liability and indemnification of
the landlord.

Along with this new addendum, your Texas REALTOR® membership gives you exclusive access to 136 forms unavailable to nonmember license holders. Find your forms at
