Since judicial interpretation provides the effective enforcement of these changes, a section containing several case studies is included in the course in order to illustrate the law in action in contemporary practice.
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. First, the five canons of professional ethics and conduct are identified and discussed. Because agency relationships are critical to real estate transactions, this relationship is explored. Another relationship that is explored involves connections between parties in real estate transactions, including intermediary brokerage relationships and sub agency. The relationship between a real estate agent and a client is a fiduciary one, requiring each agent to put clients' interests first and adhere to the particular standards and ethics required by law. 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.
