Bill Caption

Relating to a seller's disclosure notice for residential property regarding floodplains, flood pools, floodways, or reservoirs.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 3815 would require a separate notification of disclosure to be added to real estate transactions by the seller in order to notify the purchaser if the property was located in a flood plain.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action recommends opposing HB 3815 as a violation of limited government and personal responsibility. Disclosure of flood plains is already listed as a disclosure to buyers by law. This bill would not only result in a duplicative process, but it would also unnecessarily expand state government.
