Texas Register Preamble

The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) adopts amendments to §531.18, Consumer Information, in Chapter 531, Canons of Professional Ethics and Conduct, without changes to the text, as published in the March 25, 2022, issue of the Texas Register (47 TexReg 1587). The rule will not be republished.

The amendments to Chapter 531 are made as a result of the Commission's quadrennial rule review. Importantly, the amendments to 22 TAC 531.18, Consumer Information, are not intended to change who must comply with this rule i.e., active real estate brokers and sales agents), but merely to use more consistent and concise language.

No comments were received on the proposed amendments as published.

The amendments are adopted 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.
