Course Summary

2019 Mandatory - LREC Updates & Addenda

This is the LREC mandated course for 2019. The course focuses on the updates made to the LA Residential Agreement to Buy or Sell. The course will also examine the updates made in 2017 as well as 2018, all of which are incorporated into the current Purchase Agreement. We will also examine in-depth the sections on Financing, Curative work, and Inspections. We will explore what is customary, what is required, and what actions may incur liability on the part of the licensee. This course refers to and analyzes the addenda, both mandatory and suggested, that may be used when filling out a Purchase Agreement. Finally, we will examine the new features associated with the updated MyLREC portal.

Some of the test questions were outdated (2017). Some of the answer choices were misleading as well.

The Mandatory course, although required, was both informative and educational. One doesn't realize what he doesn't know until taking the course.
