    How to locate a tenant who abandoned property during Eviction process in Texas?

    Had a horrible tenant that absolutely destroyed our rental home.  We started the eviction process, but they moved out literally over night prior to the court date.  Any advice on how to find the tenants and get reimbursed for the damages they did to the house?  The damages FAR exceed the security deposit.

    Or a better question is…is it worth the time and money.  FYI over 10K worth of damages…

    What's the limit of small claims in Texas? Can you do this one-time for the full amount over 10K?

    You can at least ruin his credit. He won't be able to rent a hotel room if he has 10K worth of judgement against him, and he won't be around to contest it either. wink
