Jennifer, as my peers have mentioned, property taxes are paid for the previous year and need to be paid by January. There are instances where a payment plan is set up, however there may be fees associated with that. During closing both buyer and seller have their portion of the property taxes owed settled on the closing statement.

Not sure why Trulia would do this, but when I go to my HAR website there is a filter for Montrose and for Houston Midtown that are side by side areas. These two areas combined make up MLS Area 16 on our larger Metro Map and is inner loop and a very desirable part of town.

If you would like to check out my website and send me a message with what you are looking for, I would be happy to send you a personalized list.
price range, # of bedrooms, etc, Pets?

Do you have your landlord's approval? If not, that would be the first step. Many owners would want to interview the new prospective tenant before granting permission for a sublease. If you live in a complex with a management company, it may be even more difficult. Whatever the circumstances, do not go behind the owner's back ... it could be a very expensive lesson.

Assuming that it's OK, I'd post it on Craigslist or one of those "green sheets" found in many restaurants and convenience stores. I own several rental properties, and would not want to lease any of my homes to a stranger. Best of luck ...

i'm sure you have a HMA, homeowner ass. send a letter to them, explain your situation.
Usually, they go at the house make outside inspection and send them a review with the policies.
They also send how many days they have in order to repair or do the yard.
If they don't do anything, HMA send a company and make the requirement by the policies, and later they send to the owner the bill.
If you don't have HMA, look in your community/town what is the law said.
Good Luck
