Learn about new and changed laws in this 3-hour Continuing Education training

It is vital for an agent or licensee to stay up to date with the law. First-time buyers and people selling their homes after many years are completely out of touch with the recent updates in legislation. As an agent who understands local and state laws and their impacts in the industry and who has the ability to discuss new legislation, you will be able to comfort cautious consumers. Tristar Academy has been approved to present this 3-hour course that discusses amendments and recent updates in Maryland Law that were passed in the legislative sessions of 2020 and 2021 and explores how these will affect everyday real estate practices and ensures that you are completely up-to-date with the law. Additionally, this course provides the participants with contemporary trends and practices in the real estate industry particularly relating to governmental legislative intervention for regulation purposes. The course affords the participants the opportunity to learn about the up-to-date position of current and novel legal issues facing Maryland licensees and offers legitimately strategic legal avenues to proffer a solution to such arising issues. Among other things, the participants are exposed to several legislations dealing with affordable housing and taxes, Real Estate Brokerage and Contracts, Common Ownership Communities, Land use, property rights, and the environment, property management, and other miscellaneous laws. Some of the things that will be discussed:
