New Notice Added to the Seller’s Disclosure on Sep 1 (TREC)

Governor Abbott Has Signed HB 890

HB 890 amends the Seller’s Disclosure to add a general notice that a property may be located near a military installation and/or in a zone where high operational noise levels or installation compatible use restrictions may apply. The notice also directs a potential buyer to a local area impact study to obtain more information.

Home buyers should specifically be made aware of the large number of highly-valued military installations in various locations across Texas and the potential impact of each facility’s operations on any nearby housing.  This added notice attempts to accomplish both of these goals.

A revised TREC Seller Disclosure Notice form containing this new requirement will be available on the TREC website prior to September 1, 2017.
