More Alabama CE Requirements for 2014

Manage Your Risk–Know the Law

It has been less than two weeks since our CE deadline for 2012 and I’m already looking forward to 2014? Yes I am but for different reasons than you think. Real estate agents are the worst procrastinators I’ve seen in all the industries I work with. Alabama law requires only 15-hours of continuing education for each licensee in order to renew a two-year license of which the licensee can complete any time between Oct. 1 of odd year and Sept. 30, of even year; two years later. Agents have a full 24 months to complete their CE requirements but they wait until the last 4-6 months to take their CE and some don’t even meet that deadline. Some have their license placed inactive until they can complete their CE and then pay a fine to re-activate their license. Of the 15-hours required, only 3-hours of Risk Management have been mandatory up until now. All other 12-hours are elective courses; this means the agent selects their courses of choice. Some agents will select courses that are very easy to complete quickly and they may not have any legal or beneficial content at all. For that reason, we now have three separate 3-hour Risk Management classes to fulfill the needs for both sales people and brokers; both of which are required to take a minimum of 6 hours CE in Risk Management.  I will break these down and explain them individually.

This Is CE Year—What’s That?

This Is CE Year—What’s That?

CE is an acronym for Continuing Education. You choose the term you want to use for it but don’t forget about it. To a Realtor® CE is of most importance. In Alabama, every licensee that has an active license is required to take a minimum of 15-hour CE during a two year period prior to renewing their real estate license. I’ll explain it for it. In Alabama, real estate agents renew their license every even year; 2010, 2012, 2014, etc. The deadline for license renewal is September 30 every even year. For example; all agents must renew their license by midnight September 30, 2012. If they aren’t renewed, license will automatically be placed inactive by the Alabama Real Estate Commission. Therefore, every active licensee has to complete 15-hours of CE beginning October 1, 2010 and ending midnight September 30, 2012. If this deadline is not met, their license will automatically be placed inactive and can no longer participate in normal real estate practices until certain requirements are met. Do you now see how important CE is?

Misrepresentation by Real Estate Agents

The Law is the Law

Alabama real estate licensees are governed by the Alabama Real Estate Commission; which specifically enforces the Alabama License Law. Over the next few weeks I will cover various topics of the Alabama License Law where violations occur that ends by disciplinary action taken by the Commission. Today we are focusing on Section §34-27-36 (a) (2) of the Alabama License Law which states: “Engaging in misrepresentation or dishonest or fraudulent acts when selling, buying, trading, or renting real property of his or her own or of a spouse or child or parent.” You will quickly see that this violation is specific to a licensed real estate agent selling, buying trading or renting their own property or property that is owned by a close family member.

Section §34-27-2 (b) of the license law states, [Read more…]

Quadrennial Code of Ethics

The National Association of Realtors was formed in 1908. And then in 1913, established the Professional Standards for Conduct. These are standard we refer to as the Code of Ethics. The National Association of Realtors requires all its members to take a special, updated version of the Code of Ethics every four years. These same standards were later the basis for many state laws which govern the representation of consumers as it relates to buying and selling real estate. NAR membership is comprised of state and county boards that cover the entire United States; which is the largest professional association in America.
