The modern-day state of Texas was originally inhabited by Native Americans called the Ancestral Puebloans. These people were organized into large communities that lived in family pit houses. They were succeeded by the Mississippian culture, known for satellite villages and urban-like settlements. After the Mississippians, there came different tribes, some of which had direct contact with the Europeans. Some of these contemporary natives include the Apache, Alabama, Bidai, Atakapan, Caddo, Comanche, Coahuiltecan, Coushatta, Choctaw, Jumano, Hasinai, Kickapoo, Karankawa, Wichita, Tonkawa, and Kiowa.
The phrase "Six Flags over Texas" refers the nations which used to control this territory including Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the Confederate States of American, and then finally the United States of America. It is a state with an incredible history. Its map was drafted by a Spanish explorer named Alonso Alvarez de Pineda in 1519. Cabeza de Vaca, together with his troop, would later settle in this area 9 years later. This region was included in the Mexican War of Independence that took place in the early 19th century as it was still part of Mexico at that time. The Battle of Gonzales erupted as a result of tension between the centralists and federalists in Mexico. This led to a Revolution, which saw the residents elect delegates leading to a provisional government. The senseless Goliad massacre of Texan POW’s was shortly followed by the Battle of the Alamo, which prompted the elected officials to sign the Declaration of Independence on 2nd March 1836, and the Republic was born.
The state of Texas was admitted to the Union on December 29, 1845, as the 28th state with a population of about 125,000 residents at the time. This state now covers an area of 268,820 square miles which makes it the 2nd largest state in the United States, based on area. With an estimated population of about 28 million Texans calling it home, it now ranks as the 2nd most populous US state. Nicknamed The Lone Star State, its residents are led by the motto Friendship.

For instance, Loving Country was created in 1893, abolished in 1897 only to be finally re-created in 1931. Due to its large size, the state has very diverse and distinct landscapes s and it can be divided into more than seven geographical regions, each with a very different landscape, giving it a feel of being a country in itself.

When buying or selling a house here, the real estate closing agent will typically use a Warranty Deed to convey the title of the property to the new owner. For the deed to be legally valid, the document must include the property’s exact legal description, which usually comes from language within the property’s original survey. This state primarily follows a combination fo three different types of real estate surveying methodology; the Spanish Land Grants from its days when it was part of Spain and then Mexico, its old early system when it was a republic prior to joining the Union, and a unique variation of the U.S. Public Land Survey System (PLSS) methodology.
If you aren’t paying cash for the home and are instead getting a loan to buy the real estate, then understand that this is primarily a title theory state. This simply means that the raw title of the property will remain in a trust until the lien is ultimately paid off. The most common document that is used here to secure the lender’s interest in the title is called a Deed of Trust. Another less conventional method in TX is for the bank to use a Mortgage instead.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the home loan, then the lender can typically avoid having to go through the court system. They do this by merely starting a non-judicial foreclosure which typically only takes about 60 days to complete. However, when necessary, the lender may need to instead go to court and start a more lengthy and costly judicial foreclosure. The laws that pertain to the Tex. foreclosure process are mostly found in Title 5, Section 51 of Tex. Code .
However, if you are a landlord here that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference the statutes of Title 8, Chapters 91 and 92 instead. Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the TX Real Estate Commission, which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the state's Real Estate Laws. Amongst other things, the main requirements to get a real estate license here would be to be at least 18 years old, complete at least 210 hours of their approved real estate courses, successfully pass the written state real estate exam, pass certain criminal background checks, and pay the various required licensing fees.
