WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW – TAR LEGAL ADVICE
TAR sent out this information to REALTORS® across the state, and it is packed with information you need to know. Please take special note of the ability to apply for assistance from the Texas REALTORS® Disaster Relief Fund (or to donate to it if you are able), as well as the information dispelling the inaccuracies about the new homeowner’s insurance law that goes into effect on Friday (spoiler alert: it doesn’t impact regular insurance claims and only applies to lawsuits filed against insurance companies). Check out TAR Resources for Texas REALTORS® affected by Harvey.
Texas REALTORS® Disaster Relief Fund
REALTORS® and members of the public who’ve suffered loss due to Harvey can apply for up to $1,000 of mortgage or rental payment assistance from the Texas REALTORS® Relief Fund. Apply for assistance
