What does " Tenants agree to hold owner harmless for any claims from damages for which owner is legally responsible" mean?

That particular phrase means that if anything happens while you are the tenant which causes the property owner to be sued for damages, that you will be responsible for payment of any such damages that a court or jury might award against the landlord. I am not sure what kind of contract you are speaking of with regard to your question about cancellation in three days.

I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would appreciate a 5 star rating. (Scroll to the top of this reply to locate the rating buttons.) If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated. Thanks for using JUST ANSWER.

I assume that if I cause the damage I can not be sued. If someone else causes the damage on the owners property, I may be liable. Secondly, the second question : In the state of Texas I understand that I have a 3 business day ability to cancel the contract.

In the state of Texas I understand that I have a 3 business day ability to cancel the contract.

I seriously doubt it. The three-day rescission rule usually applies only to contracts for home improvements, or where a mortgage is involved. there is usually no right of rescission for normal business contracts, such as leases.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
