As a Texas REALTOR®, you have exclusive access to more than 100 forms that aren’t available to nonmember license holders. With so many forms, it’s easy to miss a few that you could be using to avoid legal issues and educate your clients. Here are five forms you can only get as a member of the association. Find them at texasrealestate.com/realtorforms.

This form is designed to inform the buyer of the risks of purchasing property in certain counties near an international border, if the property lacks basic infrastructure, and instructs the buyer to consult an attorney.
Inspector Information (TAR 2506)
This notice states that the broker does not warrant the quality of the inspector’s service, which helps you reduce your risk when providing a buyer or seller with a list of inspectors.
Wire Fraud Warning (TAR 2517)
Make sure your clients know about this common real estate scam by providing this notice, which explains what wire fraud is and what to do if they believe they are being targeted in a wire fraud scam.
Representation Disclosure (TAR 1417)

You may use this form to meet that requirement, if you choose to disclose in writing.
