- Liens, Taxes & Foreclosures - 3.5 Hours
This course discusses liens, taxes and foreclosures. There are many types of liens as well as several kinds of taxes that can attach to a parcel of real estate. When borrowers default on a debt, foreclosure is the process by which lien-holders collect the unpaid portion of a debt. Because liens represent an interest in real property, it is crucial that real state licensees develop an in-depth understanding of liens and lien-related issues. Such knowledge also helps licensees to better advise buyers and sellers. (Approval No. M8025)
- Contracts, Purchase & Sales Agreements - 4 Hours
Clear, mutually-acceptable agreements are an essential component of the legal transference of ownership. In the practice of real estate, contracts are the instruments used to describe and record the agreements surrounding the conveyance of property. Some type of contract is nearly always involved, whether a salesperson is promising to sell a property within a specified period of time, a prospective buyer is placing an offer on a house or a seller is considering an offer on property. (Approval No. M7079)
- Environmental Hazards - 4 Hours
This course covers major environmental hazards. Licensees need to familiarize themselves with environmental issues because they have a responsibility to disclose to buyers any information that might affect their decision to buy. Environmental hazards can dramatically affect a property’s value, so buyers, sellers, lenders and licensees all can be affected by them. (Approval No. M8111)
