termite inspector didn't find termites but after moving in, we did
In Texas, we are required to get a separate professional termite inspection, a regular home inspector isn't qualified. Next time hire a professional termite inspector.

Partially Complete New Build
You will need a construction loan from a bank or other lender. I tried getting one about 2 years ago, and no bank would touch it because of the down market.

You are better off finding another source of financing, such as a HELOC on your existing property.

It is not normal to pay a commission on lease renewals. If you have not signed an agreement, I would strike that language from any contract the agent wants you to sign. Even better, I would find another agent who won't charge you that ridiculous commision
