Paragraph 2B(2) of the Residential Condominium Contract (Resale) (1605, TREC 30-13) details what happens if a buyer hasn’t received the condo documents—declaration, bylaws, rules of the association—when the contract is written.

It says that the seller shall deliver the documents within a certain number of days after the effective date. However, a recent change to the form clarifies that the delivery of the documents is at the seller’s expense.

The revised version of the form with this clarifying language is available now in zipForm and on Use of the revised form is voluntary until May 15.
