TREC Contract Forms, Addenda, Notices

Statutory Notice of Water Level Fluctuations Contract Language

House Bill 1665 enacted by the 84th Legislature adds Section 5.019 to the Property Code. This section requires a seller of residential or commercial property that adjoins a lake, reservoir, or other impoundment of water with a normal operating capacity of 5,000 acre-feet or more to give the buyer a statutorily prescribed form of notice on or before the effective date of the contract. If the notice is not given, the buyer may terminate the contract for any reason within seven days after receiving the notice from the seller or information described by the notice from any other person. After the date of conveyance, the buyer may bring an action against the seller for misrepresentation if the seller failed to give the notice before the conveyance and had actual knowledge that the water level fluctuates. This provision becomes effective September 1, 2015.

Until revised contract forms addressing this statutory requirement are adopted by the Commission, license holders may insert the following language in the Special Provisions paragraph of a contract if a property adjoins such a body of water.


The water level of the impoundment of water adjoining the Property fluctuates for various reasons, including as a result of: (1) an entity lawfully exercising its right to use the water stored in the impoundment; or (2) drought or flood conditions.

Notice Regarding Contract Forms

As public records, the contract forms adopted by the Texas Real Estate Commission are available to any person.

However, TREC contract forms are intended for use only by licensed real estate brokers or salespersons who are trained in their correct use. Mistakes in the use of a form may result in financial loss or a contract which is unenforceable.

If you are obtaining the forms for possible use in a real estate transaction, you should contact a real estate licensee or an attorney for assistance. TREC cannot provide legal advice to the public on private contractual matters.

TREC does not promulgate listing or buyer representation agreements, property management contracts, forms for commercial property, or residential leases (other than temporary residential leases used in connection with a sale). Contact your attorney or a trade association for such forms.

Adobe (Acrobat) Reader Help: Many TREC documents are in the Adobe PDF pdf iconformat.
Find out here whether you have a compatible version of the Adobe (Acrobat) Reader.

Note: These forms are blank, and not fillable on the computer.
To view links to publishing companies that sell fillable contract forms, see Forms and Contracts Software at Texas A&M University's Real Estate Center.
