Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs - Building Homes and Strengthening Communities

Foreclosure Data Collection
(Senate Bill 1233)

If you are a homeowner facing foreclosure, please visit the Foreclosure Assistance page.

The repeal of §51.0022 from the 83rd Texas Legislation Session allows the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs to discontinue the collection of forms from county clerks used by lien holders across the State when filing foreclosure notices against residential properties and by sheriffs and trustees conducting foreclosure sales of residential properties. The Department is no longer required to submit the information received from the county clerks to the Legislature on a quarterly basis. This proposed rule applies to notices of sale filed on or after September 1, 2013.

Approved by the governing board on September 12, 2013: Consent Agenda 1m (PDF).
