dc.descriptionThis report examines the troubling and growing array of fees that tenants are confronting in the Texas rental housing market. These charges, also known as “junk fees,” obscure the true price of housing and prevent comparison shopping; they impose financial strains on tenants and create barriers to affordable housing access. The report includes five categories of reforms to rein in junk fees in Texas and create better transparency for Texas renters.
