AUSTIN – Gov. Greg Abbott has signed House Bill 890. This 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 for more information.
This notice attempts to make homebuyers aware of the large number of highly-valued military installations across Texas and the potential impact of each facility's operations on nearby housing.
A revised Texas Real Estate Commission Seller's Disclosure Notice form containing this new requirement will be available on the TREC website by Sept. 1, 2017.
