The licensee will be introduced to the numerous problems which may arise in the formation, interpretation and performance of a contract which may affect its validity. The licensee will also learn how the concepts of assignment and delegation may apply to a real estate related contract.
Conditions and contingencies are involved in most real estate transactions. In the discussion of conditions and contingencies the licensee will be introduced to how conditions impact most contracts.

Finally, the licensee will be introduced to the concept of breach of contact and will learn the resulting consequences of a contract breach along with the many possible remedies available to the injured party. The licensee will also be introduced to the concept of tort liability as it applies to the breach of contracts and its impact on potential litigation in which a licensee may become involved.
