    Real estate broker safety and criminal background checks

    in Legal

    Criminal background checks on real estate clients and the Fair Housing Laws

    With the recent murder of Arkansas Real Estate agent Beverly Carter, broker safety is in the forefront of the news.

    Should real estate brokers and thier frims run cirminal background checks on unknown persons who claim an interest in buying real estate?

    Does the law permit this?

    Can you refuse to show a property if the potential purcahser of the property has a felony or misdemeanor in their background (such as passing bad checks, violent crimes, murder, domestic violence, crimes against women, assault, battery, fraud or forgery)?

    There are important questions.  

    If you are wrongfully discirminating in refusing to show properties to potential buyers of real estate, do you run the risk of getting sued merely because you were trying to protect your own safety?

    Listen in as Attorney Steve, the real estate lawyer, discusses this important real estate law topic.

    This show is general legal information only.

    If you are involved in a Federal Housing Act ltigation, or need counsel in your real estate litigation case, contact us at (877) 276-5084 to speak with one of our real estate attorneys.

    Repealing the $75K Broker Bond

    in Business

    James Lamb is President of the Association of Independent Property Brokers and Agents (AIPBA) and a former New York State Department of Transportation Motor Carrier Investigator.

    Included in the Highway Bill, known as MAP-21 that was passed in 2012, is the act to raise the broker bond to $75,000. James Lamb has been fighting the act since day one.

    Mr. Lamb submitted a 10-page exemption request to the FMCSA that would relieve all property brokers and freight forwarders from the $75,000 bond provision within the trucking industry.

    The FMCSA accepted comments to the request which recently ended on January 26, 2014 and the AIPBA continues its work to have the bond repealed. Will the FMCSA override the requirement in accordance with their lawful exemption authority duly granted to them by Congress?

    Mr. Lamb joins us as our special guest to share their accomplishments and to bring us all up-to-date on the broker bond issue.
