Recognizing that real estate agents had no guarantee of receiving their commissions, the Texas legislature adopted HB 1052 in 1999. This bill added to the property code (Chapter 62: Broker Link and Expert Lien on Commercial Real Estate) a chapter that allows commercial real estate agents to insure their commissions by obtaining a pawn on a seller`s property.

Disputes between REALTORS® are generally resolved in arbitration proceedings because of mandatory arbitration under section 17 of the Code of Ethics. Article 17 provides that contractual disputes between REALTORS® related to different companies must be subject to arbitration proceedings instead of litigation. Prosecuting another REALTOR® in such cases, bringing a commission action, and then refusing to withdraw from the action or dismiss the action at the request of the other party, is a refusal to arbitrate according to the standard of practice 17-1. That would be a violation of the code of ethics. However, a dispute does not constitute a violation of article 17 if all parties to the dispute waive their right of conciliation.
