Texas Register Preamble

The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) adopts amendments to §535.300, concerning advertising by residential rental locators without changes to the proposed text as published in the June 25, 2004, issue of the Texas Register (29 TexReg 6052) and will not be republished.

The amendments change the cites to the relevant statutory provisions in Chapter 1101, Texas Occupations Code. House Bill 2813, 77th Legislature (2001), added Chapter 1101, a nonsubstantive codification of The Real Estate License Act, and repealed Article 6573a, Texas Civil Statutes effective June 1, 2003. The amendments are also adopted in connection with TREC's on-going review of its rules. The reasons for the revisions are to update the rules, to provide clarification of the underlying statutory authority for the rules, and to improve their style and readability.

No comments were received regarding adoption of the amendments.

The amendments are adopted under Texas Occupations Code, §1101.151, which authorizes the Texas Real Estate Commission to make and enforce all rules and regulations necessary for the performance of its duties and to establish standards of conduct and ethics for its licensees in keeping with the purpose and intent of the Act to insure compliance with the provisions of the Act.

The statute affected by this adoption is Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 1101. No other statute, code or article is affected by the adopted amendments.
