2 Scams to Avoid When Buying a Home in Texas.

A scam that’s been around for years
After closing a letter in the mail containing lots of data about your property from a company offering to file their homestead-exemption paperwork—for the low, low price of $35. There is no fee for filing your homestead exemption in Texas. You download the form from the state and file it with your local appraisal district; it doesn’t cost anything.

2nd Scam
You may receive an official-looking letter or invoice asking for a fee a few days after closing from a deed-retrieval service, charging us $87 for a copy of our deed. Throw away the so-called invoice—we would be getting a copy from the title company.
