Does a seller always have to provide the survey?

I had a survey of my home done when I bought it five years ago. Now I’m selling my house, and I can’t find it. Am I responsible for providing the survey?

It depends. If you’re using the One to Four Family Residential Contract (Resale), look to Paragraph 6C for your options. There are three options within that paragraph related to whether the buyer or seller must provide the survey and when they must do so.

Carefully review these options before selecting a check box in Paragraph 6C. Talk to your Texas REALTOR® to learn more about your options and the steps you should take in your transaction.
