This 18-hour course includes all of the TREC required topics for licensee renewal, as well as a set of elective courses to meet the elective requirement.
The course begins with 2020 MCE legal updates to keep licensees abreast of the newest changes in real estate regulations, including those pertaining to property management. Then, we'll review disclosures, addendums, and other contract forms that have been modified, along with learning about water damage and flooding issues. Then, we'll look at ethics requirements, rebates and referral fees, advertising and title issues, and RESPA compliance.
After that we'll move to practices and techniques that can be implemented to help a real estate brokerage operate efficiently. This includes a discussion of issues that can arise when working in an office with multiple licensees, supervision and management techniques, and the development of office policies and procedures.
Next, we'll review the regulations that apply to advertising your services, as well as the prohibitions of antitrust laws. We'll also talk about best practices in recordkeeping and producing financial reports.
Last, we’ll go over contracts, including coverage of key terms, Texas real estate law, and frequently encountered contracts, with a special focus on Listing Agreements and Buyer Agency Agreements. This section finishes with a look into topics such as leasing real estate, leasehold estates, types of leases, and the discharge of leases.
The course concludes with a short 30-question exam required by TREC to assess student learning.
