A lease can be oral or written. If you have a WRITTEN lease, your rights are (for the most part, and within certain limitations) defined by what's in the written lease. If you DON'T have a written lease, your rights are defined by the Texas Property Code.

In other words, if you're paying money in exchange for having a place to live, you have a lease. It just isn't in writing.

You should talk to a lawyer if Dad tries to evict you.
