Colorado Real Estate Attorney Urges Real Estate Community Exercise Caution During COVID-19 Pandemic
Today, Colorado real estate attorney Damien Cox issued a memo to Colorado real estate brokers regarding COVID-19. It is Cox’s opinion that those conducting real estate transactions need to exercise a high level of caution even though Denver, Boulder, and other government entities have deemed real estate transactions as “essential business.”
Cox mentions several instances in which buyers, sellers, brokers, and others may have been exposed to COVID-19 or tested positive and yet still conducted transactions. He explains that using hand sanitizers, Lysol, and other disinfectants isn’t enough. Cox pleads for the real estate community to heed the warnings from the health communities, stay home and practice social distancing. He advises against finding new business during this time.
