Chapter 93A – Consumer Protection and Business Regulation
|This class addresses placing the consumer on a level playing field with the business of real estate, and prioritizing proper disclosure and behavior in the business of real estate” also licensees’ obligations. Designed for real estate brokers and salespersons and provides a comprehensive overview of the application, procedures and potential liability under the Consumer Protection Statute. While this law has far reaching impact on business activities, this course merely puts focus on those elements relevant to real estate practice. While a thorough knowledge of this important law is critical for licensees, it is not a substitution for legal counsel. The actual law is M.G.L. c. 93A, but it is widely referenced as “93A”.|
