The content of this course covers essential contract law, both national and Nevada-specific, and the laws of agency, likewise both national and specific to Nevada. In addition, and along related lines, the program presents a terse review of the issues defining and impacting the broker – sales associate relationship. The program ends with a comprehensive survey of risk management and how to manage risk minimization in your brokerage practice, particularly in contexts that impact contracts, agency, and activities within the brokerage.
As a format preview, this course is comprised of seven chapters. Each chapter begins with an informative text narrative summarizing key points of required content. Subsequently, participants will be given quiz questions following each chapter. Following Chapter 3 and Chapter 7, students will engage in a skills workshop focusing on conveyance contracts and brokerage agreements, respectively. Students will be required to participate by answering problem-solving questions and situations.
The intent of these chapters, and the program as a whole, is to give students an interactive opportunity to focus on the day-to-day skills of contracting, working with clients, and managing one’s practice so that such practice can be delivered in a professional manner and in full compliance with Nevada’s many underlying laws and regulations.
