The Texas Real Estate Commission is considering changes that will affect several of its forms.

Why are the forms changing?
Legislation passed during this year's session requires some changes, and the Broker-Lawyer Committee has recommended others..

When will the forms change?
TREC is meeting August 17 to consider the changes. Any form modifications adopted on August 17 will be adopted on an emergency basis, mandatory for use beginning September 1, and reviewed again at TREC's November meeting. At that November meeting, any changes adopted on August 17 will be considered for permanent adoption—they could also be tweaked before permanent adoption.

What is changing?
Read the cover story of this month's Texas REALTOR® magazine for details on the changes being considered. You can also view a PDF that includes all the redlined forms on TREC's website.
