Environmental Issues

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.

Agency

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.

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.

Code of Ethics

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.
