Energy Audit misdemeanor

I had many conversations last week with fellow agents in regard to the energy audit.  Word on the street, is that if you want to try to get an exemption, it is best to call them rather than email.  

The mandatory performance of an energy audit upon property sale is not a Real Estate law; this is a City Ordinance specific to Austin Energy customers.  Will you still close, if you don’t have one?  The answer is yes.  It is my understanding, that if the deed is recorded without the audit recorded with it…the Seller will be fined in accordance with a Class C misdemeanor.  Are we having fun yet?

I support local Austin; after all I think it’s only neighborly.
