This course covers major environmental hazards as they pertain to the real estate industry. Licensees need to familiarize themselves with environmental issues because they have a responsibility to disclose to buyers any information that might affect their decision to buy. Environmental hazards can dramatically affect a property's value, so buyers, sellers, lenders and licensees all can be affected by them.

Students will learn about health hazards, environmental legislation, liability and responsibility for cleanup and protection.  In this course, students will acquire a competency with environmental issues that will help them to elucidate issues for buyers, sellers and lenders. Knowledge of environmental issues also will help protect them from charges of nondisclosure.
