AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has released the newest list of people who are no longer authorized to perform or offer to perform licensed services in Texas. The orders represent actions taken in the last 90 days by TDLR’s Executive Director, Brian Francis, and the Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation to safeguard consumers and protect public health and safety.

“Consumer safety is a top priority at TDLR,” said Brian E. Francis, TDLR Executive Director. “In our most recent agency strategic plan, we promised to educate and empower consumers by providing them with the tools to make informed choices about the industries TDLR regulates. The Safeguarding Consumers webpage is one way we can help do that, by informing the public when someone in their community is not authorized to work in a TDLR-regulated field. Whether it’s a revocation, cease and desist order, or permanent injunction, people working in professions and industries without the proper license can pose a risk to your health, your safety, and your wallet. Always check with TDLR first to make sure the person you hire is on the level.”

Among the types of violations that would cause a license to be revoked or that would cause TDLR to issue a cease and desist order or a permanent injunction: performing services without having the appropriate license, making false statements to obtain a license, engaging in fraudulent activity or being convicted of a criminal offense that directly relates to the duties and responsibilities of the licensed occupation.

TDLR maintains a public list so that consumers can protect themselves against using unlicensed service providers. To see ALL violations, including license revocations, suspensions, and fines, search TDLR’s Administrative Orders database (https://www.tdlr.texas.gov/cimsfo/fosearch.asp).

The respondents listed below are not authorized to perform, or offer to perform, licensed services in Texas. These orders represent actions taken by TDLR’s Executive Director and the Texas Commission of Licensing & Regulation to safeguard consumers and protect public health and safety.
