Texas Investors - Contract Issue - Posted by Brandi_TX

In the standard TREC contract, it states the following:
(A) SELLER?S DISCLOSURE NOTICE PURSUANT TO SECTION 5.008, TEXAS PROPERTY CODE (check one box)
- Buyer has received the Notice.
- Buyer has not received The Seller?s Disclosure Notice. Within 7 days after the effective date of this contract, Seller shall deliver the Notice to Buyer. If Buyer does not receive the Notice, Buyer may terminate this contract at any time prior to the closing. If Seller delivers such notice, Buyer may terminate this contract for any reason within 7 days after Buyer receives the Notice or prior to closing, whichever occurs first.
- The Texas Property Code does not require this Seller to furnish the Notice.
In drafting my own contracts, will using this be enough of an out? As I understand this, I have 7 days from receiving this notice to back out of the contract. Is there a need for any other “inspection and approval” clause?
Any tips on items to include in self-drafted contracts or in an addendum to the standard TREC contract would be much appreciated. I have an attorney that will be reveiwing them when I am finished.
Thanks in advance,
