    Buyer, Beware. The HUD Settlement Statement is Wrong, Wrong, Wrong! My very excited buyers closed on their first home in the Bonbrook Plantation Subdivision in Rosenberg, Texas 3 months ago. We had looked long and hard until they found the perfect house to fit their growing family. At closing, the escrow officer gave them the standard explanation about the seller credits for property taxes. The seller’s portion of taxes from January 1 to closing date had been calculated and credited to the buyers because, in Texas, property taxes are due and payable in January of the following year. The owner of record on December 31 is responsible for paying the current year’s taxes.  Last week I got a call from Mrs. Homeowner asking about the amount of the property tax credit she had received on t...

Please Visit http://www.rosenbergrrmuseum.org/ First, there was the dream.  A group first met in 1990 with the idea for a railroad museum.  In late 1992, an exploratory committee met to determine the feasibility of establishing museum to emphasize the railroad history of Fort Bend County.  Rosenberg was the largest city in the county that was named for a railroad official, was actually platted by a railroad company - the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe, and is centrally located, so it became the primary focus as a location for the museum. In 1993, committee chairman and County Court-at-Law Judge Larry Wagenbach convinced the Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Railway Company to donate 1.47 acres of land on the west side of 3rd Street and north of Avenue F in downtown Rosenberg to the Rosenberg Rev...
