There may be some apartments that do but no houses that I am aware of. If that is something you need/want, it may be possible to negotiate that with a landlord.

Marge Bennett answered:
Have to ask yourself some questions. How much will you use the pool (really) many folks have to have a pool, then find it is rarely, if ever used.
Do you have the time to care for the pool or will you hire it done? Do you want your pool to yourself or do you mind sharing it with others. Both on an overall view and also when you are in it.'
A community pool can be a great place to meet your neighbors and socialize. Also share the expense of maintenance and increased insurance with everyone else. On the other hand if you want to walk out your back door and not worry about anyone else being there, your own makes more sense.

Lease to own is not very common at all. You see some owner finance options, but usually the owner requires a large down payment. There is just a lot of risk legally to the homeowner in a lease to own situation. ... more

Piet Janse-van Vuuren answered:
The simple answer to your question is yes, you are correct that a portion of Deer Ridge Estates is in the 100 year flood plain. There are techniques for mitigating flood loss and lowering flood insurance premiums on these lots located in the flood plain. It is doubtful, however, that pier and beam foundations would be permissible in such a high end community unless it could be guaranteed not to be a detraction in the appearance of the property. The goal in lowering the risk of flood is to have the lowest point of the top or surface of a foundation (known technically as LFE, or Lowest Floor Elevation above (as high above as possible) of the Base Flood Elevation (called BFE on a flood elevation certificate as is reasonable. Fill dirt which is properly graded may be the option on some of these lots. As a former Independent Insurance Agency owner in the area and having knowledge of Deer Ridge Estates, I would be happy to assist in any way possible. I realize you posted this question in September and apologize for not having responded sooner. ... more

No, the tenant is responsible for the property taxes. The owner is responsible for paying the taxes each year. The tenant is responsible for their lease application fee, deposits, and monthly rent. They are are also responsible for utility hook-up (if disconnected), utilities, and typically yard maintenance and pool maintence (unless otherwise specified in the the lease agreement). If you have any other questions about real estate, please feel free to email or call me.

Unfortunately, there aren't any lease homes for $900 or under available in Kingwood. The lease market is still booming, and the lowest priced rental property at this time is $1050.

Dedy Slack answered:
Renting a home to own is not a concept we use in Texas. My suggestion is to focus on finding a home to rent that meets all yours needs as if you were to purchase. After your lease is up it's possible you can negotiate to buy it from the owner. ... more

Bruce Lynn answered:
I'm not sure there is a law.
There really is no reason they wouldn't give them to you.

Normally they would even provide them before closing to you.

If you just want the HUD closing statement, your realtor will have that too.

Normally I would not give my realtor POA....even if you are out of state. We can still close remotely, by FedEx or email. But of course we are way past that issue at this point.

We need to get you in contact with one of our Commercial agents who can help you with tenant representation.
The lease prices will depend on many factors, such as location, age, lease type, lease length.
I suggest you hire a professional to do this for you. They're experts and may think of many many variations on terms most people never think about.
