Rent typically includes property taxes, hazard insurance, and any HOA dues. It typically, does not include utilities, landscape maintenance or cleaning expenses. You should also be prepared to provide your own "renter's" insurance to protect all of your possessions.

Hi Yfeder,

Yes in Texas its mostly commonly what we call a net rent which covers all HOA and property taxes.

You only pay for utilties and renter insurance.

You as tenant responsible for the executed lease agreement amount nothing else.

If you are the owner you need to include mortgage, insurance, tax , miscell. establish the rental amount

On a rental property, typically the Owner pays the taxes. The Owner of the property is responsible for paying the taxes. This is a key component when it comes to investors, purchasing rental properties for investment purposes. Allocating a budget for taxes and insurance is extremely important to build strength within the portfolio.

Normally yes, but it depends on the property.

Commercial leases often have tenants paying NNN or taxes, insurance, maintenance and utilities.

On residential leases, normally the owner pays taxes and building insurance and HOA fees if any.
Tenant pays for utilities and some repairs.

The landlord pays the taxes and normally the HOA dues. They do this because if you didn't pay them it would come back on them. You are entitled to the use of any of the community amenities and have to abide by the HOA rules ( you should request a copy of them). Hope that helps.

I'm not sure what you meant, but as renters you do not pay property tax, the property owner will.
I'll be happy to show you some properties for lease if you are not currently working with a realtor. Feel free to call me.

Thank you!
