Texas Homestead Notice

New Central Appraisal District Procedures in Texas You Need to Know About

Beginning in 2024, a modification in the Texas Tax Code requires all Central Appraisal Districts to verify a property owner’s eligibility to continue to receive their homestead exemption. For most districts, this will consist of a review every five years, potentially necessitating some homeowners to reapply for their exemption. Should you receive notification from your Central Appraisal District, it’s crucial not to disregard it. Take proactive measures to confirm your eligibility and ensure ongoing access to the advantages provided by the homestead exemption.

What changed?

The new HMS law require the CAD to put a procedure in place to confirm exemptions are still applicable at minimum once every five years.

SECTION 1. Section 11.43, Tax Code, is amended by adding Subsection (h-1) to read as follows:

(h-1) The chief appraiser of an appraisal district shall develop a program for the periodic review of each residence homestead exemption granted by the district under Section 11.13 to confirm that the recipient of the exemption still qualifies for the exemption. The program must require the chief appraiser to review each residence homestead exemption at least once every five tax years. The program may provide for the review to take place in phases, with a portion of the exemptions reviewed in each tax year.

SECTION 2. The chief appraiser of an appraisal district shall develop and implement the program required by Section 11.43(h-1), Tax Code, as added by this Act, not later than January 1, 2024. The program must provide that the first five-year review cycle required by that section begins on that date.

SECTION 3.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2023

What didn’t change?

  • Duty to notify- Property owner must notify the chief appraiser in writing before May 1 of the year after his or her right to this exemption ends.
  • No requirement to refile annually- Property owner does not need to reapply annually, but must reapply if the chief appraiser requires additional information or reapplication.

What does that mean to me?

In an effort for CAD to verify applicable exemptions, homeowners may receive requests by the chief appraiser to reapply for the existing exemptions.  Failure to not respond to these requests may result in a loss of all exemptions for the current calendar year and future years. Do not ignore requests from the CAD for reapplication or additional information.

What documentation may be required?

Along with a completed application. “Attach a copy of property owner’s driver’s license or state-issued personal identification certificate. The address listed on the driver’s license or state-issued personal identification certificate must correspond to the property address for which the exemption is requested. Property owners who reside in certain facilities or participate in a certain address confidentiality program may be exempt from this requirement. The chief appraiser may waive the requirements for certain active duty U.S. armed services members or their spouses or holders of certain driver’s licenses.”

Are you sure this isn’t fraud?

If you are concerned the request is fraudulent, please contact the CAD at the numbers below.  Remember there is NO fee to apply for exemptions or reapply for exemptions.

Republic Title Offers a Spring Market Outlook For North Texas Residential Real Estate

As the North Texas real estate market gears up for the spring season, there’s an air of optimism and anticipation. With several factors at play, this year’s spring market promises to be dynamic and promising for buyers and sellers alike.

This outlook is provided by Republic Title, an industry leader and title expert with over 30 years of experience in North Texas, who closely monitors market trends and provides valuable insights to stakeholders in the real estate industry.

1. Dallas-Fort Worth Ranks as The No. 2 Hottest Housing Market

According to the latest RE/MAX National Housing Report, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has secured its position as the No. 2 hottest housing market in the nation. This ranking underscores the region’s enduring appeal and resilience, positioning it as a top destination for homebuyers and investors alike. With demand remaining robust and inventory levels tight, the D-FW housing market is poised to continue its upward trajectory, offering promising opportunities for both buyers and sellers.

2. Anticipated Faster Recovery Than The National Average

Despite economic fluctuations, North Texas is expected to rebound faster than the national average. The region’s diverse economy, coupled with its strong job market and population growth, serves as a catalyst for recovery. As businesses expand and economic activity resumes, consumer confidence is expected to strengthen, further fueling housing market activity. This accelerated recovery trajectory bodes well for homeowners and prospective buyers, signaling a return to growth and prosperity in the North Texas real estate market.

Home prices are expected to rise during this year’s spring market.

3. Projected Rise in Home Prices

Home prices in North Texas are anticipated to continue their upward trajectory during the spring market. Limited inventory coupled with high demand exerts upward pressure on home prices, making it a seller’s market in many areas. Buyers should be prepared to act quickly and competitively to secure desirable properties, while sellers stand to benefit from favorable pricing dynamics. Despite affordability challenges, the prospect of lower mortgage rates in the near future may provide some relief for buyers.

4. All Eyes on The Federal Reserve

As the real estate market enters the spring season, all eyes are on the Federal Reserve and its monetary policy decisions. While most experts do not predict an immediate drop in mortgage rates, there is speculation about potential rate adjustments later in the year.

For those in the homebuying market, an option to consider is to proceed with a purchase now and explore the opportunity to refinance when rates are expected to decrease. This strategic approach allows buyers to take advantage of current market conditions while keeping future opportunities in mind.

According to statistics from the U.S. Burea of Labor Statistics, Dallas has the second fastest-growing job market in the country.

5. Dallas Boasts the Second Fastest-Growing Job Market

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Dallas continues to solidify its reputation as a thriving economic hub, with the second fastest-growing job market in the country. The region’s diversified economy, business-friendly environment, and skilled workforce attract businesses and talent from across the nation.

As job opportunities abound and wages rise, North Texas remains an attractive destination for professionals and families seeking career advancement and economic prosperity. This robust job market not only drives housing demand but also fosters long-term stability and growth in the real estate sector.

6. Vigilance Against Wire Fraud Scams

Despite the positive outlook for the spring market, buyers, sellers, and real estate professionals must remain vigilant against wire fraud scams. With the increasing reliance on digital platforms for transactions, cybercriminals continue to target unsuspecting individuals in real estate transactions.

It’s essential for all parties involved to exercise caution, verify the authenticity of communication channels, and implement secure payment protocols to mitigate the risk of wire fraud. By staying informed and adopting best practices for cybersecurity, stakeholders can safeguard their interests and ensure a smooth and secure real estate transaction process.

In conclusion, the spring market outlook for residential real estate in North Texas is marked by optimism, resilience, and promising opportunities. With favorable market conditions, anticipated interest rate adjustments, and a robust job market, the stage is set for a vibrant and dynamic season ahead.

Republic Title Tip – Title Insurance: Safeguarding Your Home

When it comes to purchasing a home, the excitement of finding the perfect property can often overshadow the importance of ensuring the title is clear and free of any disputes. Yet, overlooking this crucial step can lead to significant financial and legal ramifications. This is where title insurance steps in as a guardian of your investment, providing assurance and protection against unforeseen risks. In this Republic Title Tip, we delve into the significance of title insurance for homebuyers, shedding light on why it’s an indispensable aspect of the real estate transaction process.

What Is Title Insurance?

First and foremost, let’s unravel the concept of title insurance. In essence, title insurance is a specialized type of insurance that indemnifies homeowners against loss arising from defects in the title or ownership of a property.

Unlike other forms of insurance that protect against future events, title insurance is a one-time premium and focuses on mitigating risks associated with past events that may affect the property’s legal ownership.

Why Is Title Insurance Necessary?

Consider this: When purchasing a home, you’re not just acquiring the physical structure and land. You’re also buying the legal history.

By conducting a comprehensive title search, title insurance companies unearth any potential clouds on the title, such as unpaid taxes, liens, undisclosed heirs, or unresolved legal disputes. If an issue arises after purchase, title insurance provides coverage for loss, costs, attorney’s fees, and expenses, thereby shielding homeowners from financial liabilities that could otherwise jeopardize their investment.

Title Insurance for Ownership Disputes

One of the primary risks title insurance protects against is the threat of ownership disputes. Imagine purchasing your dream home, only to discover months or even years later that another party has a legal claim to the property.

Such scenarios can arise for various reasons, including errors in public records, forged documents, or undisclosed heirs asserting their rights to the property. Without title insurance, resolving these disputes can entail lengthy and costly legal battles, potentially resulting in the loss of your home and investment.

Title Fraud, Errors, and Property Easements

Moreover, title insurance also guards against title defects that may arise post-purchase. These defects can range from errors or omissions in the title documentation, fraud, or forgery, to someone else having an easement on your property, or no access to your property. Without adequate protection, homeowners could find themselves facing substantial financial burdens to rectify these issues or even risk losing their property altogether.

Republic Title understands the significance of title insurance in safeguarding their clients’ investments. As a trusted resource and industry expert, they go above and beyond to ensure your real estate transactions are conducted with the utmost diligence and integrity. Their team of experienced professionals conducts thorough title searches, leveraging technology and industry expertise to identify and mitigate any potential risks to your investment.

Republic Title offers a range of title insurance policies tailored to meet the unique needs of homeowners and lenders alike. Whether you’re purchasing a new home, refinancing an existing mortgage, or conducting a commercial real estate transaction, Republic Title can provide comprehensive coverage and exceptional service at every step.

Title insurance is not just another box to check off during the home-buying process — it’s a critical safeguard covering title risks. By partnering with Republic Title, you can trust your real estate transactions are in expert hands, backed by decades of industry experience and a commitment to excellence.
