A law that goes into effect September 1 requires a change if you’re selling residential or commercial property that adjoins certain bodies of water. Here’s a list of the lakes and reservoirs included in the law.
The law requires that the seller notifies the buyer that the amount of water in the lake or reservoir could fluctuate. The required language, which could be inserted into your contract, is listed on the Texas Real Estate Commission’s website.
A Texas REALTOR® can help you determine if this law applies to your property and how to correctly provide the new disclosure.
