The license holders are governed by:
- Texas Real Estate License Act
- The Inspector Act
- The Residential Service Company Act
- The Timeshare Act
These Acts establish the makeup of the commission and it’s advisory committees and outline procedures by which a person can become real estate license holders in Texas. The Acts also describe TREC’s jurisdiction over license holders and registrants. TREC has the authority to adopt administrative rules to provide specificity to provisions of the Acts. TREC may also adopt rules to establish policy regarding certain practices. Both the Acts and TREC Rules are a great resource for helping consumers know what to expect from a real estate service provider.
