02 Nov One Size Does Not Fit All One Size Does Not Fit All Thursday, November 2, 2017 7.5 CE Hours Silverdale Beach Hotel, Silverdale, Washington Class Details DescriptionLocationInstructors Advanced course on contract drafting. Thereâ€™s much more to completing purchase and sales agreements than â€œfilling in the blanks.â€ Real estate licensees are admonished time and again not to engage in the practice of law; consequently, licensees typically are not trained in contract drafting and are left to their own devicesâ€‰â€”â€‰often with disastrous results! Printed forms are great, but they are â€œone size fits allâ€ and not all transactions are the same size. This practical course covers drafting tips, rules of contract interpretation, avoiding ambiguity and drafting limitations on licensees.
