You may want to look for developments that will be completed by the time you get here, sometimes they offer discounted rates to the first tenants.

Houston is a unique city for it's size, because of our no-zoning laws. As such, it can be difficult for someone new to this area to really get an idea of "where" to be. In general, you will want to take the time, or find someone that is knowledgable of the area. As a Realtor, I am prohibited from saying anything that would make you believe you are safe in any area or property. The most upcoming and popular area for a lot of Houstonians is the "Inner Loop" which offers a large variety of dining, shopping, arts, parks etc. It is urban as you desire, but can be pricey at times. It just depends what you are looking for. I would love to talk to you more about it, if you want to contact me. I can help.

Well first thing I would ask is if he is on the lease. If he is not, then he would have no legal standing and basically you would just change the locks and move merrily along. If the police are involved you can have a restraining order or an order of protection put on him to keep him from bothering you. There are a lot of scenerios at play here and without very specfic information it would be hard to tell you how to proceed.

Mc if you don't file for eviction you will never get them out. For the specific actions you need to follow go down to the clerks office where you would file and ask them for the steps to follow. They can not give you legal advice but be nice and they will tell you where to get the proper forms and if you are kind to them they may doulbl check it to make sure that they are filled out right.
Do not try to set these people out without going through a legal eviction as you will be in the wrong and if they sue it will cost you a whloe lot more than lost rent and legal fees which you can sue them for.
I have only done 1 eviction where I got the money that I was awarded but I had to garnish wages to get get that. By the way do you have their original lease you are going to need that and the application would be nice to have as that should have the tenants SS number on it.
