The Texas Residential Construction Commission is now known as the Builders' Agency of Defense or BAD. To really understand how far this agency goes to protect builders, you need to first be reminded that before the Texas Legislature aka the FOBs - Friends of Builders - created an entirely new agency to protect builders from homeowner claims and insulate them from inferior building practices, there was already an elaborate statute in the Texas Property Code that was beefed up each legislative session to raise the bar higher and higher for consumers to make home builders responsble. It was and still is called RCLA - the Residential Construction Liability Act. It is still alive and waiting for unsuspecting consumers who traverse the pitfalls of the TRCC inspection process and then discover that an entirely new and different statute awaits them with additional protections and requirements just to get their house repaired.
A homeowner in Crowley, Texas had their state sponsored inspection performed in their house and the builder failed to show up. What that meant in practical terms was that the builder lacked the opportunity to lobby the inspector with the six to eight different people, including attorneys, to try and convince the inspector that what he was seeing was not what was in front of him. So now, in its continuing efforts to aid, assist and abet the home builders in Texas, the TRCC is telling the homeowner that they either concede to a new inspection or their request for an inspection is over. Who cares that the inspection was conducted, the buillder has been inside the house and the homeowner is expected to do all of the accomodation. The TRCC - the best protection the building industry could buy.
