Default Disclosure and Inspection: Are You Truly Protecting Yourself or Your Client?

InterNACHI School is offering a class for Realtors!

In today’s market, brokers are so busy that more and more things fall between the cracks. One of the biggest areas that creates liability is a lack of disclosure, and not handling the inspection process properly, resulting in complaints and lawsuits.

There’s a lot of misunderstanding of what a broker should be doing, and the proper ways for how the inspection and related issues should be handled, and it’s one of the least-covered areas in real estate education. Don’t be left exposed!

This class will help you learn ways to:
  • properly disclose material defects;
  • make disclosures to the other (non-client) party;
  • understand how to avoid “slandering” a property and potentially causing damage to your client (buyer or seller);
  • properly handle inspections (it's probably NOT what you’ve been doing!); and
  • handle resolutions and concessions, and other creative options.

Don’t get trapped!

This class is DORA-approved and worth 3 Continuing Education credit hours.

This class is a great idea. Proper handling of material defects requires understanding of their significance by both the realtor and client involved with the real estate transaction.

Agents know how to play the game. They created it. What they do not know will not hurt them. Most agent associations sell homes as is anyway, which covers them. If defects are found after move-in, the inspector, if the home was inspected, gets the call. Brokers should be screening all trades persons who serve their clients and agents, but they are very good at wearing blinders.
