Agency


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”. This three-hour video course outlines the various types of agency and the standards of practice associated with each.

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.
  • Outline the different types of agency and the standards of practice associated with each.

Environmental Issues


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Human activity has been impacting the environment for thousands of years. Industrial, chemical, and energy related waste materials have had an exponential effect on the environment. It has only been in the last 50 years or so that environmental laws have been enacted to protect public health, safety and welfare, as well as preserving natural resources. These and other issues have made environmental law more and more prevalent in real estate transactions and litigation, as opposing groups seek to contain and remediate costs associated with contaminated sites and similar issues.

Real Estate Disclosure Laws


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. While disclosure laws are in place to protect the consumer, they constitute a legal framework that real estate professionals must comply with. There are a number of areas that require disclosure in real estate; seller’s property condition, agency relationships, lead-based paint presence, mineral/subsurface rights, and finally consumer financing requirements. This course covers the disclosure laws that real estate professionals must adhere to, the transactions in which they will come across these requirements, and case law to illustrate real life scenarios.

After completing this course  participants will be able to:

  • Recognize and implement the broad range of disclosure requirements that protect buyers and sellers.
  • Be able to describe and integrate the agency relationships that are created during a real estate transaction.
  • Outline the different types of agency and the standards of practice associated with each.
  • Know when and under what circumstances lead-based paint disclosure must be provided.
  • Have a good understanding of what mineral/subsurface rights are, and how they can impact a real estate transaction.

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.

After completing this course  participants will be able to:

  • Understand the history behind and the connection between civil rights legislation and the Fair Housing Act.
  • Recognize and apply the standards outlined by court decisions in Fair Housing case law.
  • Be able to integrate the rules and regulations pertaining to Fair Housing laws in the real estate industry.

Risk Management


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Risk is the potential, or possibility that something bad or unpleasant, such as an injury or loss, will happen. The various risks we face are fines and penalties for violating the law, either intentionally or accidentally; loss of money due to damages awarded in a lawsuit; or even loss of our ability to make a living in our chosen profession. This also includes injuries to ourselves or others. Since some risk is inevitable in the marketplace, it is important to carry insurance to protect against inadvertent exposure to risk. Risk management allows you to assess, identify and then determine what kind of agreements, insurance or policies will best protect your business.
