Legal Hotline

What is the REALTORS® Legal Hotline?

The REALTORS® Legal Hotline is a service which provides members of the Colorado Association of REALTORS® with direct access to a qualified real estate attorney who can offer information on real estate law and related matters.  The Hotline provides legal information, not legal representation.

How do I use the Legal Hotline?

The principal broker and any additional REALTORS® specifically designated by the principle broker from each REALTOR® office are allowed access to the Hotline.  Each user must accept the Terms and Conditions before calling the Hotline. Once you accept the Terms and Conditions, you will gain access to the hotline.
