IN TEXAS - Can a Landlord of commercial property file a Notice of Non-Responsibility to prevent a contractor from filing a lien for work performed in the premises by a tenant?
I have filed Notices of Non -responsibility in Florida, and was wondering if there was something of the kind that could prevent a contractor from filing a lien on landlord's property for worked performed by a tenant.

Good question! While some states allow for the use of a Notice of Nonresponsiblity (or some similar notice), they aren't available everywhere. To my knowledge, and upon brief review of the Texas Property Code, there does not appear to be a Notice of Nonrepsonsibility available to relieve landlords from potential liens caused by their tenants' improvements in Texas.
