Our license holders are governed by the Texas Real Estate License Act, the Inspector Act, and the Timeshare Act. These Acts establish the makeup of the Commission and its advisory committees and outline procedures by which a person can become real estate license holders in Texas. The Acts also describe TREC’s jurisdiction over license holders and registrants.

TREC has the authority to adopt administrative rules to provide specificity to provisions of the Acts. TREC may also adopt rules to establish a policy regarding certain practices. Both the Acts and TREC rules are a great resource for helping consumers know what to expect from a real estate service provider.

TREC Rules

The tables below show all of our recently proposed and adopted rules. Written comments on proposed rules are accepted for 30 days after publication in the Texas Register. After that period, comments can be made in person at the next Commission meeting. Please send written comments to TREC's general.counsel@trec.texas.gov.

These changes also modify the section that clarifies what happens if a registration expires on a Saturday, Sunday, or other day the Commission is not open for business to be consistent with rule language applicable to other license holders in 22 TAC §535.91.

Continuing Education Requirements
Proposed Date
02/14/2022

HB 531 requires a landlord to disclose, in certain situations, whether the landlord is aware that the dwelling is located in a 100-year floodplain or that the dwelling has flooded within the last five years.

Standard Contract Form TREC No. 54-0, Landlord's Floodplain and Flood Notice
Proposed Date
05/02/2022
Adopted Date
08/08/2022

HB 531 requires a landlord to disclose, in certain situations, whether the landlord is aware that the dwelling is located in a 100-year floodplain or that the dwelling has flooded within the last five years. Because landlords of temporary residential leases are not exempted, the proposed changes create a new flood disclosure notice form.
