This package satisfies the full 12 hours of continuing education real estate licensees in Connecticut need for renewal. Both required courses, Connecticut Real Estate Agency Law Review & Fair Housing 1 and 2, are featured in this series, along with an elective course on real estate lending and financing. Each 3 hour mandatory course begins with a series of slides provided verbatim by the University of Connecticut at the request of the Connecticut Real Estate Commission. Then we expand upon the main topics by referencing their corresponding state and federal regulations.
Review the client versus customer difference, types of agency, assistance agreements, disclosure forms, and certain prohibitions in the first course. In the second course, we examine state security deposit handling, advertising guidelines, allowed compensation arrangements, and common pitfalls, in addition to fair housing history, legislation, and terminology. The bulk of that course compares the federal and state standards of fair housing practices.
Elective categories include lending laws and TILA-RESPA. We'll discuss mortgage fraud and predatory lending practices in that portion of the series. Other elective topics are as follows:
- Sources of financing
- Loans and loan programs
- Government loan programs
- Other methods of financing
- Mortgages and deeds of trust
- Land sale contracts
After each lesson, students will be asked a single question about the material. Videos and images are utilized throughout the course to aid visual and auditory learning styles. Incremental quizzes and final exams will test the student's knowledge. Successful completion of all material will unlock the Certificate needed for license renewal.
