      Texas Real Estate Commission  TREC

 

What does the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) Do? TREC is the state's regulatory agency for the following:

  • Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons

  • Real Estate Inspectors

  • Education Providers for Real Estate and Inspection Courses

  • Residential Service Companies

  • Timeshare Developers

  • Easement Or Right-of-Way (ERW) agents

 

 

Standards of practice define the minimum levels of inspection required for substantially completed residential improvements to real property up to four dwelling units. A real estate inspection is a limited visual survey and basic operation of the systems and components of a building using normal controls and does not require the use of specialized tools or procedures. The purpose of the inspection is to provide the client with information regarding the general condition of the residence at the time of inspection. The inspector may provide a higher level of inspection performance than required by these standards of practice and may inspect parts, components, and systems in addition to those described by the standards of practice.
