Preamble Texas Admin Code Rule

(a)The Texas Real Estate Commission adopts by reference Property Inspection Report, REI 7A-1 [7A-0], approved by the Texas Real Estate Commission in 2006 [1998] and published and available from the Texas Real Estate Commission, P.O. Box 12188, Austin, Texas 78711-2188.

(b)Except as provided by this section, inspections performed for a prospective buyer or prospective seller of one-to-four family residential property must be reported on Form REI 7A-1 [7A-0] ("the form"). Licensed inspectors shall complete the applicable portions of the form and provide the report within a reasonable period of time to the persons for whom the inspection has been performed. If necessary to report the inspection of a part, component or system not contained in the form, or space provided on the form is inadequate for a complete reporting of the inspection, such as when the inspector provides a higher level of inspection performance than that required by the standards of practice adopted by the commission, the inspector may attach additional pages to the form. When providing comments or additional pages to report on items listed on a form, the inspector shall arrange the comments or additional pages to follow the sequence of the items listed in the form adopted by the commission. If a part, component or system contained in the form is present in the property and has not been inspected under the departure provisions of §535.227 of this title (relating to Standards of Practice: General Provisions), the inspector shall make an appropriate notation on the form, clearly indicating the reason the part, component, or system has not been inspected.

(c)(No change.)

(d)When using form REI 7A-1 [7A-0], the inspector may make the following changes.

  (1) - (10)(No change.)

(e) - (h)(No change.)

This agency hereby certifies that the proposal has been reviewed by legal counsel and found to be within the agency's legal authority to adopt.
