Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies!
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas celebrates on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.

Agent Tip of the Week!
A seller of real estate in Texas may be required to provide to a buyer one or more notices regarding the property in question. Failure to provide the proper notice may result in liability for the seller of the real estate and/or the real estate licensee handling the transaction.
MUD Notice Information
If a property is located within a Municipal Utility District (MUD), the seller is required by the Texas Water Code to provide to a buyer prior to the buyer’s entering into a sales contract a notice regarding the MUD in which the property is located. The notice provides information regarding the tax rate, bonded indebtedness, and standby fee, if any, of the MUD.
A seller will typically know if a MUD is providing service to a property because the MUD assessment will be listed on the tax bill that the county sends to the property owner. The property seller will frequently not, however, have access to the MUD notice required to be given to the buyer and may require the assistance of a real estate licensee to obtain the proper notice. One method you may use to obtain the proper notice is to contact an agent for the MUD and request a copy of the most current notice. The name, address, and phone number of all MUDs in Texas are available through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s website.
After entering the website, you may look up any MUD by going to the first search field entitled “Search by Water District Name or Number.” Type in the name of the MUD for which you are seeking information and press enter. The website will provide information regarding that MUD, including contact information for the MUD’s agent. You may then contact the MUD’s agent to obtain a copy of the current notice form.
Section 49.455(b)(9) of the Water Code requires that all MUDs file the particular form of Notice to Purchasers that the seller must furnish to a buyer in the property records of the county in which the MUD is located with all information completed.
