On June 12, 2012, VAR hosted a live webinar to outline some of the July 1 changes to the Virginia real estate agency law and the resources that VAR is making available to brokers and agents. The webinar featured an all-star panel, including

  • VAR attorneys Jay DeBoer and Blake Hegeman;
  • NVAR attorney Sarah Louppe-Petcher;
  • RAR attorney and original RSA course author Mike Lafayette; and
  • Richmond area broker Gary Duda of RE/MAX Action Real Estate.

This webinar covered all the major facets of the upcoming changes, including:

  • exactly what the changes are (and aren’t);
  • a review of the new required disclosure forms and other supplemental forms (samples now available through  VAR’s Standard Forms Center; login required);
  • what resources are available through VAR’s Agency Center;
  • some of the major FAQs; and
  • a Q&A session answering some questions from the audience.

VAR members can now view this webinar online (login required; this is a members-only benefit).
