I bought a home from classic century in fort worth, TX. I am a first time home buyer and I do not know how to buy a home. Classic century is one side of the building and Title Company is another side of the same building. All these are same known people as family members or friends. The title company people are keen in writing main parts such as mineral rights in the builders name or on their own name, although I asked several times they did not give mineral rights. For a 1200 sq ft home costing $90,000, mineral right is not going to cost over $1000. When the buyer pays this huge amount, why the builder can not sell the mineral right also to the buyer. The reason the builder and their associates come in the form of Home owner association. Some of these people are foreigners in origin. They vote for themselves to select HOA president, by calling 2-7 home owners, in the annual HOA meeting. Once in six months they collect HOA fees, whether the home owner uses HOA facility or not. Using the mineral right and HOA associates dig your home backyard, first in small size hole, by saying cable lines they are renewing. These builders are intentionally putting cable lines underground to the home, even fences between two homes. They can put the cables in front of the homes where road is going. But they put cable there, they can not enter in the home owners backyard. Therefore strategically for their own purpose they put cables in backyard also. This type of home selling crime is going on. This is one of the reasons people hesitate to buy home and thus home sale is down.
To better save the home buyers and live with honest, state government may open a government title company and the same office also can have government HOA officers. Whenever a home owner needs a home, first home owner agrees to pay the amount to the seller. Then, government officers from government title company can go, look and measure the land area of the home and if there is any defect such as intentional underground cable lines plotted by the builder or any other defect, can be asked to remove by the officer and thereafter write the property to the buyer. Thereafter, builder (seller) must not have any right to go to that sold home again. This will help the home owners to live in a better way without worry. This will also create many government jobs and also a good income as buyers pay some fees for the assessment costs and etc.
Builders and their friends in the name of HOA should not keep the mineral rights. Mineral right should be sold along with the home to the buyer. Or mineral right must be taken by the government and it belongs to the government. This mineral right helps the builders and their friends to dig home owners land and to go, without home owners permission, into the backyard of home owners, when the home owner is at work during morning time.
