We recently got divorced in Fort Bend county, Texas.
Our property was paid off a few years ago. There was no lien on it.
I had the deed with me.
Awarded my property to my wife and was documented in the divorce decree.
To remove my name of my property, we went to Fort Bend Appraisal district who said to got to the public record office.
We went to the public record office. This is what we did ...
Provided the certified copy of divorce decree.
Provided the special warranty deed document which I notarized and signed. This is two page document that my lawyer gave me to notarize and provide for my divorce settlement. I had kept a spare copy of this special warranty deed notarized for me for my records. Which worked at the public record office.
With certified divorce decree and notarized special warranty deed, the public record office removed my name with only $13 fee. The office then put the bar code marks and new record number sticker on the special warranty deed document.
We took it to the Fort Bend appraisal office and asked them to record it in their record as my wife as a sole owner of the property. The appraisal district office mentioned that it will be done within 6/8 weeks to reflect my wife's name on the property.

It took about half of the day but the work got done.

One thumb up to Brian for those groaners!

To address your question: Include a contingency in any offer you make that the owner will provide the property without the squatter. Leave it to the seller (who certainly has an incentive) to deal with the problem. Then, if/when the problem is dealt with, you buy without the headaches involved in trying to get rid of the squatter.

Hope that helps.

Hi Roy,

Flooding isn’t often for the area. I live and work not far from La Marque, I would suggest talking with a very good Realtor in the Area that could show you properties in communities that typically don’t flood (I could recommend a few if you would like). The average elevation for the area is 15 feet and the Hurricane Flood Protection Levee is 23 feet. For a reference, the flood of 1900 that decimated Galveston surged to 14.5 feet in Galveston and in 2008 we had Ike. Ike had up to 20 feet of storm surge around Bolivar Peninsula and Galveston Bay.

This Levee map should help:

Studs around the windows provide structural support for the window.

Warmest regards,
