What happens if a license holder is convicted of a crime?
If a license holder is convicted of a felony or a criminal offense involving fraud it is a violation of section 1101.652(a)(1) of the License Act.This section gives the Commission authority to suspend or revoke a license holder that has entered a plea of guilty or nolo contendere or has been convicted of a felony or any criminal offense that involves fraud (including misdemeanors).The Commission does not have the authority to revoke or suspend a license holder that has been only charged or accused of committing a felony or criminal offense that involves fraud.A license holder is required to notify the Commission not later than the 30th day after the final conviction or the entry of a plea of guilty or nolo contendere. Failing to timely notify may result in more severe or further disciplinary action.All license holders’ criminal backgrounds are rechecked upon renewal, however, this does not excuse a license holder from notifying the Commission not later than the 30th day after the final conviction.

The Commission does not have jurisdiction to decide which party is entitled to the earnest money. However, a real estate license holder's failure to deposit earnest money in accordance with the terms of the contract could form the basis of a complaint. Please note that TREC cannot order a license holder to pay money damages. You will need to consult a private attorney about monetary damages or other civil remedies.
Pursuant to Section 535.227(a)(1) of the Standards of Practice, inspectors are not required to move appliances in order to inspect behind them. However, it is often possible to locate gas shut-off valves either behind or near appliances (such as in the cabinet next to the range). If a gas shut-off valve cannot be located, this should be reported. As the question suggests, it is sometimes also possible to use a digital camera to “see” in areas that are not otherwise accessible and there are multiple means of detection of gas leaks in existence, such as through the use of hand held detectors (however, these would be considered specialized tools and are not required to be used in performing inspections).
