Yes, you can buy a home with your name only. However, Texas is a community property state, meaning it's owned together and I'm assuming that he'll live in the house as well.

I'm not an attorney and would highly suggest that you consult with one BEFORE purchasing a home if you'd want to keep the home for yourself if he leaves. Let me know if you need me to connect you with a local attorney or two. You can call me at 469-371-2899.

They are both great additions, but if you want a larger neighborhood with more pools and common area I would go with Mira Lagos.

Angela Hornburg answered:
You would definitely need to check with Mansfield's planning and zoning. Depending on what it's currently zoned and what the exact plans were, it certainly is plausible to build 3 homes on it. If it's out of the city then it may be a little easier to do, like in the Rendon area. Give me a call if you have any additional questions about Mansfield, Rendon or Burleson. (817) 771-0998 ... more

Good evening. I work with many first time buyers in Arlington and Mansfield. I am well versed in two State programs, one that provides downpayment/closing assistance in the form of an interest-free loan and one that provides up to 5% in the form of a grant depending upon income levels. I have a relationship with a lender who is certified in these programs and would be happy to discuss your home buying needs further to identify what might be the best option for you!
