Course Description
Are you prepared for California's stringent disclosure requirements? Disclosures are one of the most important areas to understand in real estate today. All sellers are required to disclose material facts and as a real estate agent you have to have thorough knowledge of the California real estate disclosures.

In the "All About Disclosures" course you will review approximately 30 disclosure requirements that are typically seen in a residential 1-4 transaction item by item. The course will help you understand the reasons behind the disclosures, when the disclosures must be made, and when they might be exempted. Take this course to help better serve your buyers and sellers along with protecting yourself from personal liability.
