The real estate profession is not without its legal pitfalls. Most clients don’t see or appreciate everything that goes on behind the scenes when buying or selling a house. Real estate professionals are often managing a business, representing multiple clients and properties, evaluating contracts, running open houses, marketing, and managing employees. Issues are bound to arise, most unintentional, but malicious or not, mistakes can cost both the client and the real estate professional time, money and possible legal recourse.
