Formerly known as the Real Estate Law Symposium



Today's real estate market presents REALTORS® with challenges and risks and now more than ever, REALTORS® need to be up to date on the latest legal developments and changes so that they can minimize their risk of doing business.

Benefit of the Attorney / Agent relationship
Why is it important for REALTORS® to establish trusted relationships with real estate attorneys? The greatest benefit of the Attorney-REALTOR® relationship is risk management - the REALTOR® can avoid violations pertaining to the unlicensed practice of law (UPL) and can better serve their buyers and sellers by knowing when to seek legal advice.

Property? Probate? Problems.
A presentation on the interplay between real estate and probate issues.

Legislative Update
An update on recent real estate cases, legislation and administrative changes.

The ABC's of REO's
A primer on foreclosures, auctions and REO sales. These areas are constantly evolving and the challenges faced by parties to a transaction can be positively or negatively affected by this evolutionary process.

Practice Update
Panel will discuss updates to the FAR/BAR, riders, FIRPTA, construction lien waiver requirements, fraudulent inducement rules, post-TRID issues and other practical transaction related updates.

Potpourri of Property Management Delights
Interactive opportunity for the audience to help spot the issues in various aspects of the world of property management, leasing, and eviction issues. Topics that are fair game for analysis include leasing, general property management adventures, eviction fun, quirky HOA scenarios, and passing that tenant along with the sale of a house.

Survey Says Doc Stamps!
Panel will discuss issues involving surveys, easements, title insurance and the basics of transfer and mortgage taxes.

When It Just Won't Sell
Creative alternatives when surrounding circumstances simply don't work for a traditional sale.
