Word 2010 - insert a line that can be typed on and does not move the line

Please advise how I can insert a line in a Word 2010 document that when someone types on the line it does not move.

For example:
The property location is:  _________________________________.

I would like the line to show - but when the user types on the line - the text being typed is underlined and the line expands.

I would agree to the use of a form field or table as options but see the attached document for usage.

I use formfields click it and select undeline. Protect the document so the formatting is kept. I normally use a document that I have setup with formfields where I want input, then I protect the document from editing except for the formfields. As long as the information entered into the formfield does not wrap in the document everything is fine.

I would use a tab stop and underline the space before the tab stop and the tab itself.  That way the text will be underlined automatically.  See the attached as an example.
