The Brian Worrell Team of Realtors is fortunate enough to have an attorney-agent who works on our real estate team. She has a degree from Harvard Law School and has a real estate license. Therefore, my team can give legal advice. And she has given free legal advice to many of my clients in the League City / Clear Lake City area over the years and given them peace of mind regarding many concerns.
The law in most (if not all) states prohibits agents from giving legal advice, but I know many agents (myself included) are often tempted to answer our clients' legal questions....whether they concern contract interpretation, marital property rights or estate planning.
If you have the chance to get an attorney on your team, I would definitely recommend taking it. If you don't have that opportunity, I would recommend finding local attorneys in many different fields (family law, real estate, estate planning, etc.) that you can ask quick questions of or refer your clients to if necessary.
