AUSTIN, TX - The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), and Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (TALCB) are taking steps to ensure minimal disruptions in services to license holders and consumers as the COVID – 19 (coronavirus) outbreak unfolds.
TREC and TALCB are closely monitoring the need and ability to waive license requirements to ease the burden of license holders. All affected license holders will be notified through email and posted on our website as circumstances change, however, no license requirement waivers have been issued at this time.
