Clients in certain regions may have a requirement for a Personal Disclaimer on their website per MLS regulations. To aid in this, we have added a Personal Disclaimer section in the Agent area under Team Info.

Texas Real Estate Personal Disclaimer
Add Complaint Doc from TREC
Working in Texas, all brokers and sales agents need to be compliant with the Texas Real Estate Commission's (TREC) laws which ask all agents to display the Information About Brokerage Services (IABS) that has been correctly filled out and the Consumer Protection Notice. Both of these two forms need to be posted on the homepage of the license holders’ business website in a readily noticeable place.
Introduction for the IABS Form and Consumer Protection Notice
From the Texas law, all brokers and sales agents require to provide a written notice regarding information about brokerage services at the first substantive communication with prospective buyers, tenants, sellers, and landlords concerning specific real property. So TREC provides the IABS form to give the information about brokerage services to those parties.
The Consumer Protection Notice provides information about filing a complaint with TREC and information regarding the two TREC recovery funds.
Add IABS Form to Your Chime Websites
The Consumer Protection Notice has been added for all Texas agents automatically. But it's your responsibility to upload the IABS Form that has been filled out with your own info. There are two steps you will need to add the IABS form to your site.
1. Complete the IABS Form and Get a Publicly Accessible Link
First of all, you need to download the IABS form here and fill out it. Make sure all the requested info has been added to the document so that it will be effective.
2. Add IABS Form to your site
Add IABS Form to "Personal Disclaimer", and it will display in the site's footer.
