Addendum Containing Notice of Obligation to Pay Improvement District Assessment

In this video, MetroTex Forms & Contracts Committee Chair, Lydia Trevino, and Co-Chair, Cheri Feuerbacher, discuss the TREC addendum containing notice of obligation to pay improvement district assessment.

With many changes to the TREC sales contracts over last year, TREC decided that a new form would be developed as a disclosure for sellers when selling a property located in a Public Improvement District (PID). As of September 1, 2021, sellers are required to complete the disclosure form which is titled, Addendum Containing Notice of Obligation to Pay Improvement District Assessment.

The TREC Sales contracts reference this requirement in the following paragraphs:

Paragraph 6 (7):  Addresses if the property is in a public improvement district, the seller must provide notice and attach the new addendum

Paragraph 22: Reflects the new addendum being added
