The Attorney/Realtor Protocol
In 1991, in an effort to further the joint interests and concerns of Realtors® and Attorneys in Montgomery County, various Montgomery County associations of Realtors® and the Montgomery Bar Association established a committee now comprised of ten Realtors® and ten attorneys to explore and discuss numerous matters of mutual interest. The Committee believes it is beneficial for Realtors® and attorneys to identify their respective functions, duties, and expertise in real estate transactions in order that these transactions may be handled more smoothly, with less conflict, and with greater mutual respect.
The Montgomery Bar Association, as well as the Montgomery County, Delaware Valley and Tri-State Associations of Realtors® have wholeheartedly endorsed and approved the following Protocol. The Committee believes that this Protocol will serve as a guide for relationships between legal and real estate professionals, thereby improving their work with mutual clients.
