Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Texas?

This question is about Texas Landlord Tenant Rights

Texas law does not prohibit tenants from changing their locks, so if they’re not prohibited by the lease, tenants can change locks at will as long as they preserve the landlord’s access rights. Landlords, by contrast, can only change locks under very specific circumstances, usually related to nonpayment of rent.
