Pearland Real Estate Expert


Yesterday was a Historic day for Texans

Governor Rick Perry signs two very important pieces of legislation into law on Thursday, July 9 at 9:30 a.m. in HAR’s Training Room.  State Senator Tommy Williams and State Representative John Otto, are the authors of the bills that where signed into law.

House Bill 8 and House Bill 3613 where signed into law by Governor Rick Perry. Realtors® were instrumental in helping pass these appraisal reform measures. Consumers can expect to see updated appraisal methods and better oversight of appraisal districts, more enforcement authority over appraisal districts to ensure that uniform standard appraisal practices are being used. Consumers will also find alternatives to lawsuits when appealing a ruling by an appraisal review board. Also, a residence homestead to be appraised as a residence will be done so accordingly and not on the basis of the “highest and best use” appraisal standard.
