During this portion of the course, you will get an overall perspective of the current legal environment as it relates to brokerages. Your role as a broker/owner puts you in a position that requires you to manage agents and their actions in order to avoid any errors that could lead to a lawsuit. What is expected of an agent, internal policies relating to agent-owned property representation, what is covered vs. what is allowed, managing your risk/claims through a Policies & Procedures Manual, recent disclosure lawsuits along with 10 Risk Prevention Ideas.

Broker Supervisory Obligations
