    Living here so far is good for me. 99% of the time it's quiet. The only problem is valet doesn't pick up my trash

    Swimming pool has not been available since early September. Waiting on light bulbs for outside lanterns for months, which makes property very dark . Landscapers are spending all their time blowing leaves and dust, instead of ever cleaning stairs. Staff is friendly and doing their best!

    3/5 Anonymous on Jan 22, 2022

    I've lived here for 4 years. I love the location. However, the grounds are steadily getting worse. Even after many complaints, most of the lightbulbs that have been out for months on the grounds are still out. The pedestrian gate was out at least 6 weeks before being fixed only after I contacted corporate. I am very concerned about the security issues here with lights out & security gates out often, I don't feel safe. The office staff doesn't communicate very well. Very rarely do we get emails with updates around the community. I had left several messages for the office with no call back. When finally reaching a staff member, I was told they don't know how to retrieve the messages. All I'm asking for is security, communication & for maintenance to be done. Seems to be basic customer service.

Houston, TX in the news

Renter's guide to Houston, TX

Houston, TX is a place for those with unlimited thinking.  While “Houston” was the first word heard from the Moon, the city is also known for the first domed stadium and the first artificial heart transplant. Forbes ranked Houston the Fastest-Growing US City in 2015, and according to Travel + Leisure, Space City is the best place for foodies.

As the fourth largest in the US, the city of Houston only trails New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago in population. Houston, TX counts 2 million plus residents inside the city limits. However, the region is a 13-county area known as Greater Houston and covers more than 8,778 square miles (larger than the state of New Jersey and almost as big as Massachusetts.)

Houston is the largest of the four cities included in the popular Texas Triangle. San Antonio is only a 3-hour drive (197 miles) to the West, and Austin is about a 162-mile drive.  Traveling North, Dallas is only 239 miles away. 

Known for its hot, humid summers, there are only an average of 99 days with a temperature above 90°F and the city has moderate weather year-round.  Since 1939, Houston has only experienced 15 measurable snowfalls.  In fact, the temperature in Houston only drops below freezing for 18 days per year on average

Tips for renting in Houston, TX

In Texas it is most common for landlords to require your signature on a written lease, however, some of them prefer oral agreements. The Texas Attorney General controls laws applying to tenants.  These cover a wide range of issues including Fair Housing, Health and Environmental matters.

Your rights as a tenant include the right to "quiet enjoyment," as it is called in the law—meaning that the landlord cannot evict you without cause or otherwise disturb your right to live in peace and quiet. You also have a right to demand that the landlord repair any condition that materially affects your health and safety. Under Texas law, by renting you the property, the landlord guarantees that the unit will be a fit place to live. Security measures include smoke detectors, window locks, keyed deadbolts on exterior doors and pin locks for sliding glass doors.

Although standard leases can be quite stringent, your landlord may be willing to modify the contract in special cases—for example, allow a pet if you put down extra money as security.
