PICK ANY 6 DIFFERENT COURSES TO SATISFY CE REQUIREMENTS
This MA online Real Estate CE course is specifically designed for those real estate brokers and salespersons engaged in the practice of rental brokerage. With limited exceptions, the rental of real estate requires any individual/s showing a real property and assisting in a rental be licensed. Although Mandatory Consumer-Licensee Relationship Disclosure is not a requisite in the rental of a property, brokers and salespersons are usually "agents" and need to maintain heightened awareness of the fiduciary duties to a landlord, tenant or both. However, real estate licensees engaged in rentals are required to employ the written fee disclosure. A significant percentage of complaints received by the Division of Professional Licensure relate to residential rental transactions. As licensees, rental agents must maintain professional competency and understanding of the inherent legal obligations. Equally as important agents should have a thorough understanding of the "public accommodations" under the Fair Housing Laws as well as a comprehensive awareness of Massachusetts 's consumer protection regulations.
