The Virginia Association of Realtors® worked to help develop legislation to enhance the agency relationship disclosure requirements between licensees and those they represent. This means there are a number of changes to the existing agency laws in Virginia, and VAR wants to make sure that all members are up to speed on what they need to know to serve their clients and customers and stay in compliance with Virginia laws.
Check out the video library on Agency law changes. This library is growing, so check back often!
