Is the legal fund the same as the recovery fund?

No. The Real Estate Recovery Fund is a fund created by the Real Estate License Act that is maintained by the Texas Real Estate Commission (the state agency regulating Texas real estate brokers and salesmen). The Recovery Fund is funded by a $10 fee paid with every broker’s or salesman’s original license application. The recovery fund is a state-run consumer protection fund used to reimburse aggrieved persons who suffer actual damages by reasons of certain acts committed by brokers, salesmen, or their unlicensed employees or agents. A number of statutory elements must be satisfied by the consumer before he can file a claim for payment out of the recovery fund, including first obtaining a judgment against the broker or salesman that is not satisfied.
