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.
