Can a Texas landlord require tenants to repair built-in appliances that break during the lease?

asked July 8, 2019 in Realty

We are taking a 1-year lease on a house in Houston. The house comes with refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher, and ceiling fans. The lease apparently states that if any of these appliances breaks (not due to damage or mid-use) the tenants will be responsible for repairs. Does this sound normal for residential leases, or even legal?
