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.

Ohio Canons of Ethics


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Ohio law places responsibilities upon all real estate professionals regarding ethics and conduct. The law and the various trade association codes of ethics are similar yet not identical. As a license holder engaging in the real estate industry, you are bound by the ethics requirements found in the Ohio Canons of Ethics. Licensees must strive for individual ethical conduct and strive to maintain a high standard of ethical professionalism within the industry. The failure to abide by the Canons of Ethics can give rise to disciplinary action by the Division.

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.

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.

Course Description
