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.

No. Campground membership sales are regulated by the Texas Secretary of State’s Office, Statutory Documents Section, under the provisions of the Texas Camping Membership Resort Act [Chapter 222, Texas Property Code] and you should check with that agency regarding its requirements.
Yes. At the time of first substantive communication with a party relating to a proposed transaction regarding specific real property, a license holder must provide a written notice regarding agency, commonly referred to as “Information About Brokerage Services” or IABS Form. [TRELA §1101.558(b-1)]. TREC publishes the Information About Brokerage Services Form, TREC No. IABS 1-0, that license holders must use to comply with the statute.
Yes. The Information About Brokerage Services (IABS) representations disclosure is not required when:
(1) a transaction is for a residential lease less than one year and a sale is not being considered;
(2) a meeting is with a party currently known to be represented by another license holder; or
(3) the communication is at an open house and the communication concerns that same property.
In addition, the IABS is not generally required when the license holder is acting solely as a principal in the transaction.
No. TREC does not require a pre-inspection or employment contract to be signed by the parties to the inspection. Inspectors are free to use or not use a contract. You may want to have a private attorney create a contract for you, or you may check with some of the inspector trade associations to see if they provide templates of pre-inspection contracts.
TREC does not have jurisdiction over licensed repair providers. You may want to check with Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation to see if they regulate the providers. You may also want to consult with a private attorney regarding your legal rights as a homeowner.
