Texas Regulatory Waivers and Suspensions Related to Hurricane Harvey Affecting the Apartment Industry

The list below contains some of the major waivers and
suspensions of Texas laws and regulations that might affect the apartment
industry, as well as some resources and guidance for apartment communities
affected by Hurricane Harvey.  The list
is not exhaustive, due to the fact that many waivers and suspensions that have
been granted were not provided in writing or were granted on an individual
case-by-case basis. Please use this as a guide only. Before relying on any
particular waiver or suspension, the proclamation or order granting the waiver
or suspension should be reviewed.

 

Proclamations from the Office of the
Texas Governor

Harris and surrounding counties have been declared a disaster
area due to damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. 
The declaration of disaster allows the suspension of regulations that
would in any way prevent, hinder or delay necessary action in coping with the
disaster upon written approval of the Governor’s office.  The disaster declaration was extended for
another 30 days on November 19, 2017. 

https://gov.texas.gov/news/post/governor-abbott-extends-disaster-proclamation-for-60-texas-counties

Regulations regarding utility connections and property access
have been waived to allow for creation of temporary utility connections and
ease of access to utility lines to facilitate repair. 

https://gov.texas.gov/news/post/governor-abbott-proclaims-utility-companies-to-repair-service-in-wake-of-hu

The attorney general has been instructed to investigate and
prosecute claims of price gouging related to the Hurricane Harvey relief
effort.  Suspected price gouging on the
part of vendors helping with remediation efforts should be reported to the
Office of the Attorney General.

https://gov.texas.gov/news/post/governor-abbott-issues-proclamation-on-price-gouging

 

The Supreme Court of Texas

It was ordered that all courts in Texas should consider
disaster-caused delays as good cause for modifying or suspending all deadlines
and procedures—whether prescribed by statute, rule, or order—in any case, civil
or criminal.  This was extended for all justice
court matters through November 25, 2017. 
Although the extended deadline has passed, the waiver may still impact
pending cases to the extent a rule was not followed prior to November 25, 2017.

http://www.txcourts.gov/media/1438759/179091.pdf; http://www.txcourts.gov/media/1439198/179141.pdf

Statutes of limitations were temporarily suspended, provided
that any failure to comply with an applicable limitations period was caused by
Hurricane Harvey.  The suspension ended
on September 28, 2017.  Although the
extended deadline is passed, the suspension may still impact pending cases.

http://www.txcourts.gov/media/1438804/179098.pdf

 

Office of the Texas State Comptroller

The Comptroller’s office is allowing limited temporary
extensions of time to file taxes for businesses in Texas counties designated
for individual assistance by the Federal Major Disaster Declaration.

https://comptroller.texas.gov/taxes/resources/disaster-relief.php

 

Texas Department of Licensing and
Regulations

Mold remediation and assessment regulations have been
suspended and altered to facilitate repair efforts related to Hurricane
Harvey.  The requirement that a mold
remediation project have an assessment is waived for the duration of the
governor’s disaster declaration. 
Additionally, licensure requirements for out-of-state mold remediation
companies have been waived, although they must register with the TDLR.  Mold remediation project notifications are
also voluntary for the pendency of the disaster declaration. 

https://www.license.state.tx.us/mld/mldharvey.htm

With regard to elevator and escalator repair and inspection
expedited review fees and removed from service fees have been suspended. 

https://www.license.state.tx.us/elevator/ele.htm#harveyhelp

Inspection deadlines for boilers have been extended. 

https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/boilers/memos/2017-05%20Hurricane%20Harvey%20and%20Extensions.pdf

Reciprocal license applications have been fast-tracked so
that electricians wanting to assist with the Harvey recovery efforts may
quickly coordinate with Texas Electrical Contractors and begin performing
electrical work in Texas.

Fire Extinguisher Recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has ordered the recall of 134 models of Kidde fire extinguishers manufactured between January 1, 1973 and August 15, 2017, including models that were previously recalled in March 2009 and February 2015. The extinguishers were sold in red, white and silver, and are either ABC- or BC-rated. The model number is printed on the fire extinguisher label.

Digits five through nine represent the day and year of manufacture in DDDYY format. Date codes for recalled models manufactured from January 2, 2012 through August 15, 2017 are 00212 through 22717.
