Understand agency creation, types of representations, and disclosure requirements

Master the fundamentals of Brokerage Relationships and Disclosures in 3 hours

 A client is owed fiduciary responsibilities by the agent. A fiduciary responsibility, conventionally, includes loyalty, obedience, trust, confidence, skill, diligence, accountability, care, and full disclosure and the duties vary based on whom the agent is representing. An agent needs to disclose who they will be representing to all parties. Additionally, an agent needs to develop a strong understanding of the different types of agency relationships and how the agency type they have with each party alters how they work with their clients. To provide licensees with an in-depth understanding of these concepts Tristar Academy has been approved to present this mandatory agency. The course provides an analysis of agency creation in real estate transactions, different types of agency representations, the agent’s common-law duties, the concept of sub-agency, disclosed dual agency, undisclosed dual agency, remedies for breach of fiduciary duties, obligations to non-principals, the abolition of the caveat emptor law in Maryland, and termination of agency.
