TREC Ethics Update MCE 2014-2015

The purpose of this course is to provide guidance and discussion of the ethical requirements and concerns affecting Texas Real Estate Agents.

The varied responsibilities and duties of the real estate agent to different parties may often lead to conflicts of interest. Real estate agents must be aware of these potential conflicts and must also of how to prevent and deal with them.

Topics Covered
  • The Canons of Professional Ethics
  • Agency Relationships
  • Contract Issues
  • Defect Disclosure
  • Advertising
  • Intellectual Property
  • Dispute Resolution

LIENS, TAXES AND FORECLOSURES
Approved Course Number(s): 03-00-102-17477

  • This module discusses liens, taxes and foreclosures.
  • There are many types of liens, as well as several kinds of taxes, that can attach to a parcel of real estate.
  • When borrowers default on a debt, foreclosure is the process by which lienholders collect the unpaid portion of a debt. Because liens represent an interest in real property, it is crucial that real estate licensees develop an in-depth understanding of liens and lien-related issues.
  • Such knowledge also helps licensees to better advise buyers and sellers.

  • The first lesson presents a general overview of liens.
  • It explains the classification of liens and discusses the types of non-tax liens.
  • Lesson two discusses taxes and tax issues, including ad valorem taxes, real estate tax computation, special assessments, real estate transfer taxes, federal income taxes, capital gains taxes and tax shelters for homeowners and investors.
  • It also discusses the priority of liens.
  • Lesson three addresses the methods of foreclosure, redemption, deficiency judgments, tips for homeowners facing foreclosure and fraudulent behaviors related to foreclosure.

Approved Course Number(s):03-00-123-23788

  • . However, transactions can and do fall apart during the closing stage.

  • In addition, the student will learn ways to help clients through this sometimes complicated process.
  • Finally, the student will learn how to calculate closing expenses and fill out the settlement statement.
  • As the student completes this module, he or she should attempt to fit this information in with the big picture of the real estate business.
  • The conclusion of the module will assist with drawing the information together by presenting real world practice, comprehension questions and case studies for the student’s consideration. MM Update to match script correctly completed on
