Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in Texas

Texas Homestead Law clarification

A creditor has won a judgment against us and filed a lien on our homestead property.

We currently rent the property but intend to return to our homestead in the near future. We have not established a new homestead.


Who long can we rent our homestead and still keep the exemption?

Can we sell the property with a clear title. Does the lien hurt our ability to sell the homestead property?

Re: Texas Homestead Law clarification

The fact that the property is rented raises a question as to homestead exemption. As it presently stands, you cannot sell with a clear title since the lien attaches to all property that you won in that county.

Getting an attorney to clear your title may result in a lawsuit to prove up homestead.
