§ 91.003. TERMINATION OF LEASE BECAUSE OF PUBLIC
INDECENCY CONVICTION. (a) A landlord may terminate a lease
executed or renewed after June 15, 1981, if:

property for an activity for which the tenant or occupant or for
which an agent or employee of the tenant or occupant is convicted
under Chapter 43, Penal Code, as amended; and
(2) the convicted person has exhausted or abandoned
all avenues of direct appeal from the conviction.
(b) The fee owner or an intermediate lessor terminates the
lease by giving written notice of termination to the tenant or
occupant within six months after the right to terminate arises

the landlord on the 10th day after the date the notice is given.
(c) This section applies regardless of a term of the lease
to the contrary.
