Under Texas law you legally can cut electricity and water, but you would be better off just starting an eviction procedure. The reason for that is that if the tenant is hurt because no electricity, such as falling in the dark or unable to use medical equipment, you can be held liable for those injuries. So you are better off just starting eviction procedures and not taking such a risk for yourself.
Please rate 4 or 5 and close out the question. Good luck to you> I wish you all the best.
If the law allows me to do it then how can I be held liable for their failure to pay? That would be like holding the electric company liable.
