12 Hour Course
Course ID: 1702
Approved By: Oregon Real Estate Agency
AYPO offers this 12-hour package to satisfy part of the 30-hour Oregon requirement for real estate licensees’ continuing education. The course will cover some of the most legally significant topics to ensure compliance in when practicing real estate.
We’ll begin with a discussion of ethics: what they are, why they matter, and how they apply in the real estate realm. Then we’ll talk about errors and omissions that real estate professionals can be liable for without the right type of coverage.
Next, we’ll jump into a review of the fair housing laws that real estate licensees must know and abide by. This includes a history of the struggle for fair housing, as well a discussion of the fair credit reporting act.
The course will also include a discussion of agency where we’ll review the responsibilities of the parties to an agency agreement, particularly within the real estate industry. After the students will review real estate contracts, such as listing, sale, and lease agreements.
The final section of the course will cover the legal issues of property rights, titles, taxation, and how these are handled during a real estate transaction. This course will incorporate short quizzes which help students assess their retention.
