    Law of Contracts is a 30-hour course that covers the laws and regulations that affect the preparation and use of the various contracts that a Texas license holder may encounter in a residential transaction.

Therefore, the course describes the listing and buyer representation agreements, sales contracts, addenda, notices, and leases typically used. It reviews the financial instruments (promissory notes and deeds of trust) needed to close most residential transactions. Students will study the steps in the closing process and become familiar with typical closing documents.
