Will Your Paperwork Stand up in Court?
Speaker: Mike Brandly, CAI, CAS, AARE

Could your contract or terms and conditions encourage your sellers or buyers to sue you? Are people accountable to contracts and agreements they don’t comprehend? Do you really need to understand every word of your own contracts and terms? Is there a difference between a “contract” and an “agreement” and does it matter? Join this session to learn best practices for managing both your seller contracts and your bidder terms and conditions – and keep your paperwork proper.

Upon completing this session, you will be able to:

  • Explain how contracts can be considered unconscionable and/or unenforceable
  • Apply reasonableness to all contracts and agreements
  • Develop policies and procedures that encourage participation and higher prices
  • Measure the effectiveness of more “friendly” paperwork, policies, and terms
