When you receive a brown envelope in the mail from the Real Estate Commission, you may have concerns about what is to come with your career as a broker. Your brokerage’s operations, your reputation, and your future in real estate could all be at risk.
For this reason, one of the first things you should do after you open that brown envelope is contact a real estate attorney. Here is how a real estate attorney can help you in the coming days and throughout the impending investigation:
- You will need to send a response to the Commission defending your actions and providing additional documentation. A real estate attorney can help you draft this initial response to effectively defend your position.
- A real estate attorney can answer any questions or concerns you have about the impending investigation. Many brokers are unfamiliar with the investigation process, and additional information can provide greater understanding and peace of mind.
- Once you provide your initial response to your brown envelope, the investigation will continue. Your real estate attorney can help you respond to any additional correspondence from the Commission and help you gather information during the discovery phase.
A real estate attorney can ultimately protect your interests and help you navigate an investigation by the Commission after you receive a brown envelope in the mail. To find out how we can help with your situation, contact us at The Brown Envelope Attorney today.
