2019 Colorado Real Estate Commission Contract Changes
CLE: 1 General (expected)
Speaker: John Finger and Doug Barber
Establish scope of service: Many for sale by owner real estate clients think they just want a contract prepared, but may really expect that the attorney will guide them through the entire transaction. Clarify client expectations, as this significantly affects billing and duties. Are you:
* Just preparing a contract for a deal the parties have already negotiated?
* Negotiating for your party?
* Processing the contract to closing: Getting and delivering HOA and due diligence docs, arranging/managing inspections, and other experts (contractors, etc.)?
* Title commitment ordering and review?
* Review or preparation of closing documents and deeds?
If you are not a member of the EPCBA, please bring a $10 check payable to the El Paso County Bar Association to defray expenses.
The program, which is almost always an accredited CLE program, starts at 12:00 and ends by 1:00.

Overseeing this project is expensive - we spent over $1000 on supervision from the Coalition for the Upper South Platte last year. Help us defray some of the material costs of seedlings and expenses for this project associated with having Coalition of the Upper South Platte staff members lead our work.
