Ready for Texas

Automatically Generate and Email Completed TREC REI 7-6 Forms

Home Inspectors, Clients, Real Estate Agents, and others enjoy Eneris Web and PDF Reports for their media-rich content and ease of review.

In Texas, a mandatory form, REI 7-6, is provided by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), which mandates the form be completed for every home inspection performed.

Eneris provides a tool that makes it easy to automatically populate, generate, and maintain a copy of the TREC REI 7-6 PDF. This allows home inspectors to deliver high-quality reports while staying compliant and saving time.

Navigate to the newly created report and perform the inspection as appropriate using the System-by-System, or Room-by-Room data entry mode.

When you're ready to generate a TREC REI 7-6 report, navigate to the General tab of the report and scroll down to find the Supplementary Reports dropdown button in the Append Custom Files box:

Part 3 - Review Information
​Part 3
Review Information

After loading information from the main report, it is important to review the information and confirm that it has been entered to the satisfaction of the inspector and the standards of practice.

The tabs, Structural, Electrical, HVAC, Plumbing, Appliances, and Optional Systems correspond to the major systems in the TREC REI 7-6 form.

Clicking on a tab (i.e. Structural) will display a list of items, which correspond to the items to be inspected within the system as prescribed by TREC. Clicking on an item (i.e. Roof Covering Materials) will expand the section, where autofilled text may be found as a result from Part 2 above.

Text entries can be modified without affecting the main report. As the TREC REI 7-6 form has a limited amount of space, long lines of text will shrink in font size on the final form. Therefore, we recommend keeping comments concise, and referring the client to the supplementing Eneris report whenever possible.

On the right-hand-side of each item, 4 buttons display I - InspectedNI - Not Inspected, NP - Not Present, and D - Deficient. When loading data from the main report, Eneris will automatically transfer the selection from the main report's Marked As buttons to the equivalent TREC denotation for I, NI, NP.


Denotations of items D - Deficient must be done by the inspector. It is highly encouraged to expand each of the items within a system to double-check the report prior to sending it to your client.
