For certain counties located near an international border, Texas law may prohibit the sale of a property that lacks required water and sewer services. Even if a sale of such property is permitted, a buyer may face additional costs or restrictions under Texas law if there’s a lack of basic infrastructure, such as water, sewer, roads, or drainage. That’s why Texas REALTORS® created Information Regarding Property Near an International Border (TXR 2519), which is designed to inform the buyer of the risks, provide resources on the law, and advise the buyer to consult an attorney.
