15 Hour Course
Approved By: Minnesota Department of Commerce
This 15-hour complete package has everything a Minnesota licensee needs for renewal!
This package includes the MandatoryÂ 7/1/17-6/30/18 Course, 1 hour of Agency Law, and 1 hour of Fair Housing.
It begins with a review of residential contracts used in real estate transactions, such as such as representation contracts, as well the disclosure required of licensees. We'll also look over the purchase agreement, and addenda such as counter offers.
Next, we'll talk about land use controls, both public (zoning, building codes, etc.) and private (HOAs and CC&Rs). After that we'll discuss basic contract law as regards real estate contracts.
We'll also talk about fair housing regulations, and the history of discrimination that created a need for them. We'll follow this with a discussion of ethics - what they are, why they matter, and how they apply to the practice of real estate.
Our land topic will be on the common law of agency, which dictates how agency relationships are formed, executed, and terminated. We'll also talk about the duties of the parties in an agency relationship.
The course will incorporate short quizzes after each topic to help ensure student comprehension.
