  • Do you understand when, and whether, the information you have about a property is considered “material?” This course will help you understand what to disclose, and to know when you should discuss this matter with your broker and/or company attorney. You’ll also discover what “as-is” agreements cover, and when a buyer’s waiver may be appropriate. 
  • The objective of this course is to help you understand when you and your clients are obligated to make certain disclosures, and in which form those disclosures should be made. You will also learn if and how disclosure obligations and seller warranties are affected by an addendum that stipulates the buyer will accept the property “as-is.”
