Texas Contracts Mastery


One of the primary reasons Texas licensees are hired is to correctly fill out the promulgated contract forms. This course provides an in-depth look at the revised Texas Residential One to Four Family Contract (Resale) with a paragraph by paragraph discussion that includes correct procedures as well as best practices in contract construction. It answers questions such as how are binding contracts formed? What makes a contract enforceable? How can licensees avoid practicing law when writing contracts? And, importantly, how do licensees correctly reduce to writing their client's intents?
