Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Hi. I'm trying to find information about a foreclosed home in Harris County in Texas. I can't seem to find HOA information. Some websites for the address in question are saying there is a HOA of $13, or $15, or no mandatory hoa at all. The account number for the home is 1031050000001 I'd like to know how to identify HOAs for properties based on the account number or street address.
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: no
JA: Have you talked to a TX lawyer about this?
Customer: no
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: no

In Texas currently HOAs do not have to register with the state although there was a law past last fall that instructs the Texas Real Estate Commission to begin establishing a database of HOAs.  This database may be helpful to you in the future.

HOAs are recorded with the Texas Secretary of State, usually as limited liability companies.  The Secretary's office has an online portal that you can access and search.  You can search by name of companies or name of the directors/officers.  If you have the name of the property division you can try finding the HOA contact information by searching the name of the property division.

This link is the listing for all HOAs in Harris County.  It is an extensive list but if you search on here for the name of the property division you may be able to easily locate the HOA information.

I do not know if you have access to a deed for the property, but if you have been given a copy of the deed there should be a reference to the HOA information in the deed.

https://www.cclerk.hctx.net/applications/websearch/RP.aspx  This is the link for the search page for the Harris County Clerk.  You can search online real estate records here.  You can search by property address and find the owner of the property.  Once you have the owner's name, you can do a search for that name and find the deed to the property.  The deed to the property should have the HOA information on it.  The contact information for the HOA will be on the list posted above.  If you have trouble accessing the Harris County Clerk site, you can also call them at(###) ###-#### or email***@******.***
