I know of a family in Tarrant County Texas that was leasing a home for a year. They had a major repair issue come up that the homeowner "couldnt afford to fix" so this major repair was passed off to the tenate family. The homeowner couldnt file this under her home owners insurance being that we found out later she had no coverage on the home. After the repair a neighbor informed the tenate that the home is a habitat home. After some research it was found in fact that it is a habitat home & the tenate was actually able to find the "special deed" between Habitat & the owner which in fact states the home can not be rented or leased and must be owner occupied only and the owner signature also! At this point the tenate reached out demanding to be paid for the 3rd time for the repair. Then they contacted the habitat location at which this account was through. Made a report of the situation and wad told by Habitat themselves that the home isnt to be rented, the owner had nearly tripled the mortgage amount in monthly rents and was still reaping the tax exemption on the home as well as claiming it as her homestead through the tax assesors office. The owner was served to pay out the loan or foreclose. Habitat allowed the owner 60days to reoccupy the home with no penelties whats so ever. 1 months rent was withheld for the repairs after a verbal discussion between the owner & tenate &the day after meeting with habitat the owner filed eviction on the tenate. The tenate meet with habitat to see if they could help them being they had no place to go & could financially afford to move & the habitat rep referred this family who had done nothing wrong to a shelter. Habitat told this family they couldnt do anything to help them. So the homeowners excuse for leasing the property was that "she didnt read the special lease" and she was trying to bless the tenate the way Habitat had blessed her. But she scammed and financially benefitted from the home.
