REALTORS® acting as property managers sometimes ask if they are required to disclose the name of the property owner to the tenant. The answer is yes. Texas Property Code Section 92.201 requires that a landlord disclose the name and either a street or post office box address of the holder of record title (the owner) to the tenant. Disclosure may be made by including the information in a copy of the lease or in written rules given to tenants before they request the information.
