About this Course

This new mandatory course provides a review of the rules governing contract use in Texas real estate.

We'll discuss how the Texas Real Estate License Act and the rules of the Commission impact contract use. We'll also help you to distinguish between the roles of TREC and the Broker-Lawyer committee.

You'll learn what deceptive trade practices are and how the Consumer Protection Act protects against them. Finally, we'll review the current TREC Contract Forms.

Note: This Essential Topics course is required for all sales agents and brokers renewing their license on or after February 1, 2021, unless you're subject to Sales Agent Apprentice Education (SAE) requirements. The expiration date of your previous license doesn't affect this requirement – if you renew on or after February 1, 2021, you need this course.
