Texas Register Preamble

The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) adopts on an emergency basis amendments to 22 TAC §535.300, Advertising by Residential Rental Locators, in Chapter 535, General Provisions.

The amendments are adopted on an emergency basis to align the rules with statutory changes in SB 2212 adopted by the 85th Legislature to be effective September 1, 2017.

The amendments eliminate the current required reference to the Commission in all advertising.

The amendments are adopted on an emergency basis under Texas Occupations Code, §1101.151, which authorizes the Texas Real Estate Commission to adopt and enforce rules necessary to administer Chapters 1101 and 1102; and to establish standards of conduct and ethics for its license holders to fulfill the purposes of Chapters 1101 and 1102 and ensure compliance with Chapters 1101 and 1102.

The statute affected by these emergency amendments is Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 1101. No other statute, code or article is affected by the emergency amendments.
