Effective January 1, 2012: According to Senate Bill 1233 of the 82nd Legislative Session, the TDHCA is now requiring that anyone filing a "TRUSTEE'S DEED" for residential property, submit a "COMPLETED SALE FORECLOSURE FORM" at the time of recording. Please indicate on the Trustee's Deed if the property is Commercial or Residential. The forms are available at the TDHCA web site — www.tdhca.state.tx.us/housing-center. The form will not become a part of the document, and therefore we will be unable to process any Electronic filings of that particular document. All "Trustee's Deeds" filed without the attached form will be rejected if they are sent for e-recording on the basis that they must be filed either in person or by mail, with the accompanying form.
