Both TREC forms 20-14 and 30-12, The One to Four Family Residential Contract (Resale) and Residential Condominium Contract (Resale), state, “Any hydrostatic testing must be separately authorized by Seller in writing.”

Therefore, there must be a separately signed document of authorization by the seller for a hydrostatic test. Thus, for example, any authorization language in the special provisions of the standard Resale contract is not separate consent by a seller.
