    California Real Estate Brokers acting as lawyers in Small Claims Court?

    in Legal

    Can a real estate broker represent a California property owner in a small claims court in a dispute involving the property?


    Yes.  Under the California Code of Civil Procedure, there is a way that a real estate broker (property management) can represent the property owner.


    California Code of Civil Procedure Section 116.540


    CCP 116.540 states:


    (h) A party who is an owner of rental real property may appear and participate in a small claims action through a property agent under contract with the owner to manage the rental of that property, if :


    (1) the owner has retained the property agent principally to manage the rental of that property and not principally to represent the owner in small claims court,


    and


    (2) the claim relates to the rental property.


    This section allows a California property management company to appear in small claims court on behalf of the owner of the property in landlord-tenant related lawsuits.


    Should a property owner represent an owner in small claims court?


    This could be a source of revenue for the property management broker, but could also present risks of negligence, and breach of fiduciary duty.


    Listen to the show as Attorney Steve describes the legal risks.


    Do I need a special clause for small claims representation in my broker property management agreements?


    It would be wise, listen to the show to hear Attorney Steve's general comments on this topic.

    When to fire your lender

    in Real Estate

    Back again and this time we are talking about when should you fire your loan officer or your loan company. Of course, some times are better than other times so it will be a chat about timing and issues that should be making you even consider kissing that lender goodbye.


    Of course, the interview process you go through with your lender should help to make this something you don't have to worry about, but we will discuss what you can do if the need arises.


    We will also take a look at the latest real estate news and perhaps even take some time to discuss my personal experience in the investment property world.


    The market also appears to be picking up and I will share some of my first hand observations about how things appear to be doing.

    Fear is a tricky thing. It can dress itself up as caution, analysis or convenience. When it comes to real estate, fear tends to take on those forms for many people. In todays show, we are going to talk a little bit about the part that fear plays in real estate and how to overcome it. Whether you are thinking about buying your first home or getting into investments, fear the enemy you need to defeat before you can begin.


     


    UPDATE:


    As promised, I added the photos of the vacation property in Hawaii. I also managed to find a few shots of the interior which pretty closely reflect how it currently looks.
