The Louisiana REALTORS® Legal Hotline is a valuable member service allowing access to legal advice without hourly lawyer fees. Questions received through the Hotline allow Louisiana REALTORS® to track issues of concern to its members and develop programs and services to address them.
Broker members may submit questions pertaining to real estate law and compliance issues only. Association Executives may submit questions regarding board policies, bylaws, or legal issues only after consulting his or her board attorney.
If you are a broker or an Association Executive, simply submit your question using the Legal Hotline Form. Your question will then be referred to the appropriate legal counsel and a response will be sent to you within two business days.
If you have questions regarding the Legal Hotline, please email Cindy Olano.
The online Louisiana REALTORS® Legal Hotline Knowledge Base allows members to view past Hotline inquiries and responses. This knowledge base currently covers inquiries and responses for the period of October 1996 through 2015. We would like to remind you that all responses featured in the knowledge base are time sensitive. They reflect the law, regulations and ethical considerations in effect at the time of the response. We consequently caution against reliance on any response without further inquiry. Responses to the legal questions should not be construed as specific legal advice, nor are they designed to cover every aspect of a legal situation or every factual circumstance that may arise, nor is a Hotline response a substitute for your own attorney. It is merely an opportunity share what legal issues other REALTORS® are facing and, hopefully, to heighten your awareness with respect to specific issues. View Archive Index>>
