Yes and yes. You must also provide the client with the TREC Disclosure of Relationship with Residential Service Company form (RSC-2).
No, your contract first requires you to contact the residential service company to request service. They will instruct you on your contract procedure for obtaining repairs.

No. This form (RSC-2) is required only when a residential service company agrees to pay a license holder for a service provided to or on behalf of the company. The form should indicate which license holders have received or will receive the payment. If a license holder is not receiving a payment from the company, this should be noted as well.
No. If you reside outside the service area of MorphoTrust you may request a Hard Card to get fingerprinted. A TREC-specific Hard Card must be obtained from TREC because it contains coding required by the DPS and FBI. MorphoTrust has details on how a Texas Non-resident can complete the fingerprinting process using a Hard Card.
No. An individual with DACA status does not meet our licensing requirements as a lawfully admitted alien. The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Department website specifically states that deferred prosecution does not provide lawful status to a DACA recipient. Receiving a social security number and card does not provide lawful status to a DACA recipient, it merely provides proof of the work authorization granted by USCIS. To be considered a lawfully admitted alien, you must have a green card or Permanent Resident card.
