Core Law: Avoiding the Danger Zone
Thursday, August 1, 2024 (9:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EDT)
Understanding real estate law is part of every real estate licensee’s business. The more a licensee knows, the better he or she can work with customers and safeguard them from legal complications. Buying and selling property requires a lot of legal paperwork. Today, more than ever, it’s important to know the laws governing the practice of real estate.
