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.

Inspectors are not required to inspect anything buried, hidden, latent, or concealed. Accordingly, the requirement that inspectors report deficiencies in installed gutter and downspout systems applies only to visible deficiencies in above-ground gutter and downspout systems and not to underground drain piping, cisterns, or other buried components. Furthermore, there is no requirement that inspectors test gutters or downspouts (by pouring water into them or through other means).
Yes and yes. A license holder is required to use contract forms adopted by TREC. [TRELA §1101.155, Rule 537.11, etc.] Some exceptions for when a license holder does not have to use a form are in Rule 537.11(a). A license holder should also be familiar with Rules 537.11(f)-(g). Those rules prohibit a license holder from adding anything except factual matters or business details to a form adopted by TREC for mandatory use. Contract forms adopted for mandatory use are on our website.
Section 535.230(2)(J)(vi)(I)of the Standards of Practice requires inspectors to report as deficient, in gas HVAC units, deficiencies in combustion, and dilution air. None of the issues you listed would necessarily be required to be reported as deficiencies; this determination depends on several factors, such as the design of the system.
Yes. Rule 535.153 states that §1101.652(b)(22) of TRELA does not prohibit a license holder from soliciting a listing from the owner while the owner's property is subject to an exclusive listing with another broker, provided the listing does not commence until after the current listing expires.
It is best to disclose it as early as possible but it must be disclosed in the contract, lease, or in another written document given to the other principal before the agreement is signed. [Rule 535.144(b)] The disclosure is required even if the license holder is on inactive status.
