How do I obtain copies of appraiser files that are in TALCB’s possession?

Under the Texas Public Information Act, most government records are available to the public if requested in writing. A request for copies of any TALCB records or documents must be submitted to TALCB in writing. For your convenience, you can submit a public information request by submitting the Public Information Request Form or emailing your request to public.information@trec.texas.gov. Certain exceptions may apply, and there may be a cost to obtain copies of the records depending on the volume of records you request.
