Legal Help and Information for REALTORS®

Legal help and information for Colorado REALTORS®.

Part of our mission at the Colorado Association is to make REALTORS more successful. One of the ways in which we hope to achieve this goal is by offering legal resources, trends and information to our members. We offer the following member benefits:

The REALTORS Legal Hotline is a service that provides CAR members with direct access to a qualified attorney who can offer information on real estate law, license law, commission regulations and related matters.


The Legal Hotline is available Monday through Friday from 9am to Noon and 1pm to 4pm.

Access the Legal Hotline

Despite the best efforts of well-intentioned REALTORS, disagreements still occur.


Litigation arising from disputes can be slow, expensive, and intimidating. Arbitration and Mediation are generally much less expensive and more efficient. CAR offers dispute resolution services to REALTORS for disputes between other REALTORS, non-members, and clients.

Request for Dispute Services

CAR offers legal education in a variety of formats including live and in-person classes, webinars, written articles and video shorts on risk management topics.

A call to a real estate lawyer costs an average of $250 per hour. In just one hotline call, you can offset your CAR dues.
