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.

It depends on what the property manager is doing for the property owner. If the duties include showing or leasing the property for the owner for which the manager gets paid, a license is required. A license is also required for any person who controls the acceptance or deposit of rent from a resident of a single-family residential real property unit. See TRELA §1101.002(1)(A)(x) and Rule 535.4(h)
No. A license holder's bankruptcy does not affect a pending complaint or limit disciplinary action by TREC. If the underlying conduct violates §1101.652(a-1)(1) or §1101.652(b) of TRELA, disciplinary action can be taken against the license holder for the underlying conduct. Further, a judgment that involves conduct that violates §1101.652(a-1)(1) or §1101.652(b) of TRELA may be eligible for payment from the Real Estate Recovery Trust Account even if the debt was discharged in bankruptcy.
It depends. If the guide is an employee of the owner of the lots, she would not be required to be licensed. [Rule 535.5(d).] Otherwise, the guide needs to be licensed in accordance with §1101.002(1) of TRELA. For example, if the owner is a parent corporation, an employee of a subsidiary corporation selling for the parent corporation would need to have a license. [Rule 535.4(i).]
TREC only handles the licensing and discipline of real estate inspectors, you would need to contact the state agency in charge of collecting state sales tax which is the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. The website for that agency is www.comptroller.texas.gov and their toll free number is 800.252.5555.
