The Owner always refers to the entity which holds Title to the property. Most of the time, this will be a business name, and there will be a person that is associated with that company – this would be the Owner Contact.

Who the Owner is NOT:  

  • A tenant.
  • The Architect / Engineer (unless an employee of the Owner).
  • The Owner’s Attorney.
  • A contractor (unless self-building).
  • Any other person not employed by the Owner.

HOWEVER, all of these people can act on behalf of the Owner when a TDLR Owner Agent Designee Form is completed and submitted to TDLR.
