Hi Anushree,

If I have understood your question correctly- 

'Il a trois maisons'  would be, 'He has three houses'

'Il Y a trois maisons' =  There are three houses

Il Y A is an idiomatic expression which can be conjugated across tenses but has only one form ILan impersonal pronoun.

Hope this helps!
