The Texas Association of REALTORS® Legal Hotline fields more than 100 calls a day. The high volume of callers allows the hotline attorney a limited amount of time to speak with each one. Here’s how you can get the information you need when you call 800-873-9155.

  1. Before you make the call, check the Legal FAQs section of texasrealestate.com. There are more than 400 questions and answers available that may cover your situation.
  2. When you call, provide a phone number for a line you know you’ll be near—like a cell phone instead of an office phone. This may help eliminate missed calls and phone tag.
  3. Prepare notes and have relevant contracts or documents readily available.
  4. Summarize your scenario or question as best you can. Attorneys will ask follow-up questions, so you don’t have to cover every detail.
  5. Be aware that Legal Hotline attorneys can’t advise you about what you should do, like an attorney you hire would. Instead, they will give you information about real estate law and related matters so you can make an informed decision.
