Agency and Broker Relationships


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Real estate agents are subject to a broad range of legal and ethical requirements that are designed to protect buyers, sellers and the community at large. Buyers and sellers typically will delegate authority to a real estate broker to act as their agent when conducting real estate business. When this happens, an agency relationship has been created. This relationship falls under the domain of “law of agency”.

Real estate licensees are faced with many scenarios that pose the risk of legal pitfalls. Buyers, sellers, regulatory bodies, or even other agents may bring suit or file complaints against brokers and agents for a variety of reasons. Attorneys that deal with real estate transactions report that the most common source of a real estate lawsuit is misrepresentation and nondisclosure.

This course outlines the rules of agency and the standards of practice expected as well as outlining types of misrepresentation and how to avoid legal entanglement.

After completing this course  participants will be able to:

  • Recognize and implement the broad range of legal and ethical requirements that protect buyers and sellers.
  • Be able to describe and integrate the agency relationships that are created during a real estate transaction.
  • Understand the legal issues facing real estate brokers concerning misrepresentation and disclosure laws.

Code of Ethics


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Realtors should recognize that the interests of the nation and its citizens require the highest and best use of the land and the widest distribution of land ownership. They require the creation of adequate housing, the building of functioning cities, the development of productive industries and farms, and the preservation of a healthful environment.

Such interests impose obligations beyond those of ordinary commerce. They impose grave social responsibility and a patriotic duty to which Realtors should dedicate themselves, and for which they should be diligent in preparing themselves. Realtors, therefore, are zealous to maintain and improve the standards of their calling and share with their fellow Realtors a common responsibility for its integrity and honor.

This course outlines the standards of practice expected of licensed realtors, and provides several case studies to illustrate those standards.

Fair Housing

COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

It is important to realize Fair Housing laws are very much a part of today’s real estate market. Both Federal and State governments employ “testers” to police the industry. Testing is not considered entrapment and the results are admissible in court. Fair Housing is the law of the land, and even in the face of some apparent exceptions, there is no room for discrimination of any sort in the business of housing.

The Fair Housing Act has its roots in the civil rights movement and is arguably the final great legislative achievement of the times. It is a landmark civil rights act that pushed back decades of discrimination.
