Fair and Equitable Housing Regulations and Legal Ethics in Real Estate


Fair and Equitable Housing Regulations and Legal Ethics in Real Estate

Recorded On 07/11/2023


Real Estate Attorneys and Real Estate Professionals, including Realtors and Appraisers, must exercise ethical conduct towards all parties including Sellers and Purchasers of a residential real estate transaction.

Our panelists will focus on the due diligence and legal ethics that should be exercised in assisting your clients to make a well informed decision to sign a residential contract and purchase a home.

Given the current events, changing mortgage interest rates and shortage of home inventory, everyone is in a hurry to purchase a home and sign the residential contracts. Everyone is rushing and pivoting.

Yet — everyone must be mindful of due diligence and ethics. Buying a home may be the biggest investment a Purchaser may make in their lifetime.

It is the Attorney’s and Real Estate Professional’s duty and obligation to act ethically and in the best interest of the Clients.
