Texas Administrative Code
|TITLE 22||EXAMINING BOARDS|
|PART 23||TEXAS REAL ESTATE COMMISSION|
|CHAPTER 535||GENERAL PROVISIONS|
|SUBCHAPTER N||SUSPENSION AND REVOCATION OF LICENSURE|
|RULE §535.145||False Promise|
For purposes of §1101.652(b)(5) of the Act "false promise" includes both oral and written promises. The fact that a written agreement between the parties to a real estate transaction does not recite a promise made by a real estate license holder to one of the parties or that a person did not detrimentally rely on the false promise will not prevent the Commission from determining that a false promise was made. In determining whether this section has been violated, neither a written contractual provision disclaiming oral representations nor the Texas Rules of Evidence Rule 1004, the parol evidence rule, shall prevent the Commission from considering oral promises made by a license holder.
