Can I skip or pay less rent if I don't have money to pay it because of a disability?


One question frequently asked of Disability Rights Texas is "Can I get an accommodation or policy change to let me skip rent, or pay less rent, if I do not have the money to pay the rent because of my disability?"

The answer: Probably not.

From the cases Disability Rights Texas has seen, it appears unlikely that courts will require landlords to waive any portion of late rent payments, or even accept some type of payment plan, to allow tenants with disabilities to stay despite missed rent payments.
