It's Official! POA Law is a new specialty of real estate.
On Friday 9/29/17, the Texas Supreme Court issued the order [attached] that authorizes specialization in Property Owners Association Law as a category of Real Estate Law.

There is still a lot of behind-the-scenes work to be done - applications to be designed and exams to be written. The hope [no guaranty] is that candidates may begin applying in Spring 2018, with the first specialization exam given in late 2018.

Attorneys interested in specialization can check out the website of the Texas Board of Legal Specialization . The FAQs and General Requirements apply to all specializations.

I'm writing this as a member of the small REPTL team that has worked on the POA Law Specialty since 2015.

Happily reporting good news, Sharon Reuler
