Effective February 1, the Property Inspection Report form (REI 7-6) is required for all real estate inspections performed in Texas.
The form reflects changes made to the Standards of Practice (SOPs), plus an updated preamble that
- Provides greater clarity to an inspector’s client regarding an inspector’s duties while performing an inspection.
- Outlines what the client should expect from the inspection and inspection report.
Finally, the rule related to the changes clarifies how the REI 7-6 should be provided to the client when an inspector uses software or another type of electronic method to produce an inspection report.
