Review of the rules under these chapters will determine whether the reasons for adoption of the rules continue to exist. During the review process, TREC may also determine that a specific rule may need to be amended to further refine TREC’s legal and policy considerations; whether the rules reflect current TREC procedures; that no changes to a rule as currently in effect are necessary; or that a rule is not longer valid or applicable. Rules will also be combined or reduced for simplification and clarity when feasible. Readopted rules will be noted in the Texas Register’s Rules Review section without publication of the text. Any proposed amendments or repeal of a rule or chapter as a result of the review will be published in the Proposed Rules section of the Texas Register and will be open for an additional 30-day public comment period prior to final adoption or repeal.

 

TREC invites comments during the review process.

Background Check Fee for Renewals

 

All licensees who have been fingerprinted for TREC will eventually have to pay an additional fee for a subsequent background criminal history report when renewing their licenses. Licensees who were fingerprinted for a 2008 renewal, application or late renewal, and whose current license expiration is March 31, 2009 or thereafter, must pay the renewal fee and an additional fee (currently $19.25 ) for a subsequent background criminal history report to renew the license. Renewal fees will be returned to licensees who submit incorrect fee amounts and the license will expire if the correct amount is not timely received.

 


There are three steps to renew.

  1. Complete the required education for the license type. ( Total of 210 core hrs. and 60 related or core hours for SAE or 15 hours of MCE)
  2. Submit your fingerprints through L-1 if you haven't already done so.
  3. Pay the renewal fee.

 

Education and fingerprinting are not required for a timely renewed inactive license if you are subject to MCE.

 

If you are subject to SAE you are required to complete the education requirement even if you are renewing on an inactive status. Renewals without education for this type of license will be rejected. Both SAE and fingerprinting should be completed at least 10 days prior to the license expiration date. Fingerprinting is not required for a timely renewed inactive license if you are subject to SAE.

 

Late renewal applications require the submission of fingerprints.



Meeting Highlights

December 14, 2009

 

TEXAS REAL ESTATE COMMISSION

  

The Texas Real Estate Commission held its regularly scheduled meeting at the TREC headquarters in Austin, Texas on Monday, October 19, 2009. Chairman John D. Eckstrum presided.

The Commission approved payment of two recovery funds and granted staff authority to contest payment of a third recovery fund payment.

The Commission proposed new 22 TAC §535.93 regarding Late Renewal Applications for a broker or salesperson license.

The Commission proposed amendments to 22 TAC §535.208 regarding application for licensure as an inspector.

The Commission adopted amendments to 22 TAC §543 regarding Rules Relating to the Provisions of the Texas Timeshare Act and four forms adopted by reference.

The Commission decided to postpone action on the proposed amendments to 22 TAC §535.61 regarding Examination, §535.62 regarding Accreditation of Schools and Approval of Courses and Instructors and §535.64 regarding Payment of Annual Fee, Audits, Investigations and Enforcement Actions.

The Chairman asked for nominations for members to serve on the Broker Responsibility Committee and Education Advisory Committee.

The Commission approved a revised Seller’s Disclosure Notice for voluntary use after January 1, 2010.

The Commission approved a rule review schedule for 2010.

The Commission approved the proposed review of Chapter 534, General Administration, Chapter 539, Provisions of the Residential Service Company Act, and Chapter 543, Rules Relating to the Provisions of the Texas Timeshare Act.

The next scheduled meetings of the Commission will be at 10 a.m. on February 8, 2010, May 17, 2010, September 9, 2010 and November 15, 2010.


The Texas Online initiative was developed to aid Texans when interacting with state agencies by going online instead of standing in line. TREC has increased the convenience to licensees by offering web-based license renewals, original applications and other time saving services, such as the TRECAdvisor newsletter, online. The resulting decrease in operating costs has allowed TREC to avoid some fee increases, realign resources and increase other services to licensees. To further this effort, TREC is considering adopting an email delivery system for license renewal notices. Instead of sending the current renewal postcard notices, TREC would send an email to licensees 90 days, 60 days and 30 days prior to their upcoming license expiration date. These email notices would be sent to all active license holders, and notices to sponsored licensees (salespersons, apprentice and real estate inspectors, appraiser trainees) would be sent to their sponsors as well. As part of a related initiative, at completion of an online renewal, TREC would also a website link to the licensee which allows the printing of license certificates (with companion wallet-size certificates) by the licensee. Currently almost 85% of license renewals are completed online and an email address is required to do so. To ensure the success of this proposed effort, TREC needs a valid email address for each licensee. TREC welcomes your input on these proposed initiatives. Please send your comments to admin@trec.state.tx.us .

 

FOR YOUR OWN GOOD...
CHECK THE
EXPIRATION DATE OF YOUR LICENSE

It is your responsibility to ensure that your license is renewed in a timely manner. Any education required must be completed before your license expiration date if you want to maintain an active real estate license, unless you pay an additional $200 fee and complete your MCE within 60 days of the expiration date of your license.

(A license subject to SAE cannot renew without education being completed.)

Renewal reminder cards are sent out to all brokers and inactive salespersons, active salespersons' cards are sent to the sponsoring broker. The Texas Real Estate Commission is not responsible for U.S. Postal Service delivery or knowing where to find you if you have moved and have not filed a change of address with our office. Failure to receive a renewal reminder card does not provide a valid excuse for not renewing your license.

YOU MUST PAY A FEE TO RENEW YOUR LICENSE


...from the Chairman

Every new year brings us new joys, both professionally and personally, new challenges, and most certainly new opportunities; I suspect 2010 will be no different. At the December 14, 2009 Commission meeting I asked for nominations for volunteers to serve on the Broker Responsibility and Education Advisory Committees - two opportunities to work along side our industry’s regulatory agency. The Broker Responsibility Advisory Committee’s purpose is to develop information and recommendations regarding the proposal of rules defining the specific responsibilities of a broker. These recommendations are then made to the Commission and considered while the agency is undergoing rulemaking.

 

The Education Advisory Committee is also charged with reviewing the Commission’s rules regarding the approval and conduct of education providers and then developing recommendations to the Commission. If you or someone you know might be interested in serving one of these posts, please send an e-mail to Administrator Douglas Oldmixon at administrator@trec.state.tx.us right away. We plan to announce appointments at our next Commission meeting in February.

 

Both these committees will be key players as the agency undergoes Rule Review of all agency rules during 2010. In addition, work on the formal Strategic Plan is also underway and schedules, comment forms, and additional information on both of these efforts can be found on the website in late February. I hope you’ll consider providing your comments and take this opportunity to effectuate change for a better 2010!

John D. Eckstrum, Chairman

...from the Administrator

2010 is off to a fabulous start; and the agency is humming with activity. In the last issue I noted that we had undergone a formal Bottom Up Review process in November and it produced over 250 identified limitations and also suggested improvements for each. In the month of December, over 80 of those items were implemented. The balance are being considered in a series of division and senior team progress coordination meetings until implemented, modified or withdrawn. Many feed directly into the formal Rule Review process we are undergoing over the next 12 months, and also the agency Strategic Plan development process which will commence in February. Watch our websites and your email for announcements of progress and opportunities to participate.

 

These three structured reviews will provide significant opportunities for our licensees and other interested parties to provide comments and suggestions to the agency as we seek to make improvements to our forms, processes, rules and even seek legislative clarifications where necessary. Our goals remain to provide trusted and reliable consumer protection through effective education standards, straightforward licensing requirements, predictable complaint handling and fair regulatory enforcement. We encourage all who share these goals to assist us in making them a reality. Aiming high to serve you better!

Douglas E. Oldmixon, Administrator




RULE ACTIONS FROM DECEMBER 14, 2009MEETING OF THE TEXAS REAL ESTATE COMMISSION
Rule No.
EARLIEST POSSIBLE DATE OF ADOPTION
SUMMARY OF PROPOSED RULE
22 TAC §535.93
2/08/2010
New §535.93 would permit a person with an expired salesperson or broker license to retroactively renew the previous license if the application to renew was filed less than one year from the expiration of the previous license. The new rule would require the commission to renew the license in an active status except as provided by the section. In order to retroactively renew a salesperson’s license on active status, a salesperson applicant must provide certification of sponsorship for the period from the day after the license expired to the day the license issued, and for the period beginning on the day after the renewal license is issued, and otherwise comply with the section. If Mandatory Continuing Education (MCE) requirements are not met prior to the previous license expiration date, an applicant who wishes to renew the license on active status must pay an addition $200 fee and complete the MCE not later than the 60th day after the expiration of the previous license. If the application to renew is filed more than 60 days but less than one year after the previous license expired and MCE requirements were not met before the license expired, the applicant must pay a $200 MCE deferral fee, a $250 late reporting fee, complete the MCE, and if a salesperson, provide certification of sponsorship for the period in which the license was expired to the day the license issued, and for the period beginning on the day after the renewal license is issued.
22 TAC §535.208

2/08/2010

The amendments would better implement the statutory requirement that applicants for inspector licenses who fail the examination three times must wait six months before reapplying. Currently, applicants may circumvent the six-month wait requirement by filing a new application after the second failure, so that a third failure is registered as occurring under a different application. The proposed amendment would prevent applicants from filing a new application while another application is pending.

RULE NO.
EFFECTIVE DATE
SUMMARY OF ADOPTED RULES

22 TAC § 543.4, § 543.5, § 543.12, § 543.13
(adopted)




1/5/2009
  • The amendments to §543.4 adopt by reference four amended forms, TSR 1-5, 2-5, 3-3, and 8-1. The changes to the forms correct typographical errors, and TSR 1-5 is amended to be consistent with recent amendments to the Texas Timeshare Act, Chapter 221, Texas Property Code enacted under SB 1036 during the 81st Legislative Session. The revisions remove references to the name and address of the person who prepared the operating budget, and remove language that used to be required in the contract of purchase but is no longer required under SB 1036.
  • The amendment to §543.5 adds to the list of material violations failure to properly comply with requirements for filing an assumed name.
  • The amendment to §543.12 adds subsection (d) to provide a 60-day time period in which a developer must respond to a request for additional information from TREC in connection with an application to renew a timeshare plan.
  • New §543.13 provides a process and time period for which developers must file assumed names with the commission to comply with changes to the Timeshare Act made by SB 1036.

Meeting Highlights

December 11, 2009

 

Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board

  

The Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board held its regularly scheduled meeting at the TREC headquarters in Austin, Texas on Friday, December 11, 2009. Chairman Clinton Sayers presided.

The Board proposed the repeal of 22 TAC §153.24 regarding processing a complaint (see below) .

The Board proposed new 22 TAC §153.24, Processing a Complaint. (see below).

The Board approved the Peer Investigative Committee forms with clarifying language that allowed the presiding officer to establish a timeline greater than 30 days but up to 90 days for more complex reviews with language inviting PIC members to notify the board if they are available to accept more cases.

The Board approved a schedule for rule review.

The Board proposed the review of 22 TAC Chapters 155, Standards of Practice, and 157, Rules Relating to Practice and Procedure.

The Board considered six proposals for decisions from the State Office of Administrative Hearings (see Enforcement Actions).

The Board approved eleven agreed final orders or voluntary surrenders.

The Board approved four requests for an extension of time to fulfill final order requirements.

The next meetings are scheduled for February 12, 2010 and May 21, 2010 in Austin


...from the Chairman

I always enjoy having the opportunity to partner with staff, think outside of the box, and develop and execute new ways of doing business. To that end, the Board is pleased to initiate the next round of Peer Investigative Committees (PIC). Invitation letters to apply have already been sent to all USPAP certified instructors. If you have recently attained USPAP certified instructor status, I encourage you to apply as well. PICs allow for a body of peers to play an important role in the enforcement process. This might seem to be an unconventional way of regulating appraisers, but it allows for real world considerations to be fairly considered in reviewing complaints.

 

For those who qualify, I hope you will apply to serve as a PIC member. One-year appointments for 2010 will be made at the February meeting of the Board. If you have questions regarding the application, process, forms or role of peer investigators, please check for details on the agency website (http://www.talcb.state.tx.us) or contact Commissioner Douglas Oldmixon at commissioner@talcb.state.tx.us for additional information or clarification.

 

In addition to PICs, the Board is currently undergoing rule review and work on the agency strategic plan- both currently underway. Your comments are welcome in these processes and can be submitted on the website, where additional information, schedules and contacts can be found. I am looking forward to this new year, new ways of thinking, and working together to better our industry and service we provide to Texans.

 

Clinton P. Sayers, Chairman

Peer Investigative Committees (PICs) are appointed by the Chair of the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (Board) with the advice and consent of the Board's executive committee. Each PIC consists of one appraiser member of the Board (the presiding officer of the PIC) and two other appraisers who are certified USPAP instructors. PIC members may be appointed to more than one PIC and may work with more than one presiding officer appraiser member of the Board, who will coordinate the work of the PIC. Appointments are for one calendar year, but a PIC member may be reappointed for successive one-year periods. Members agree to perform at least four reviews per year, but may volunteer to perform more than four by notifying the presiding officer of their availability.

Prospective PIC members may apply for appointment by following the PIC Application Guide. Upon appointment, the Chair will sign the applicant's executed PIC Service Agreement and inform the applicant.

Conflicts of Interest

It is imperative that the Board maintain the integrity of its enforcement processes at all times and avoid any situation that could give rise to allegations that a person involved in the investigation of a complaint acted impartially. Even the mere appearance of a conflict of interest could be damaging to the Board's position in an enforcement action. Accordingly, not only must PIC members decline assignments that present actual conflicts of interest, but they must also decline assignments in which personal or professional relationships or other factors could lead to allegations that an investigation was tainted.
