correcting misconceptions about buyer representation

Buyer Representation Agreements – Misconceptions and Corrections

Legal Update There are lots of misconceptions out there about the new buyer representation forms and especially a new provision that was added to the RPA in December 2022. This article attempts to correct some of those common misconceptions. Misconception # 1. Buyer representation agreements are required by law starting with the December 2022 release of new C.A.R. forms.FALSE. Buyer representation agreements are good risk management but are not legally required. Misconception # 2. New paragraph 3G(3) in the December 2022 RPA which asks the seller to pay a commission to the buyer’s broker is mandatory.FALSE. Paragraph 3G(3) is optional. If the box is not checked, it will not be part of the agreement. Furthermore, it is important to understand that the buyer can make this request only if two conditions are met: First, the buyer must have already entered into a written agreement to pay their own broker (Form...

What to know when building an ADU

Building an ADU comes with complications, according to the L.A. Times. Among other things, property taxes will go up substantially, and the city’s rent control laws may apply to the new ADU as well as the existing single-family home on the property. Mona Field, who built an ADU next to her Eagle Rock home, said dealing with the city can be challenging. “It took me hours to figure out what they are talking about, why I owe them money, and how to respond to their paperwork.” Read More…

TOC Project Map

Transit Oriented Community (TOC) Map – Where Can Developers Build Bigger in LA?

How was a building nearly 60 feet tall approved in a neighborhood where few structures are even three stories high? Because it’s near a Metro subway station. These are known as Transit Oriented Community projects or TOC.  Buildings can be taller, denser, and have less parking and open space than usual. Thousands of apartments have been built this way across the city. And more are on the way. TOC projects must be within half a mile of a train station or the intersection of at least bus routes. Affordable housing must be included.  Generally, the closer a project is to a transit hub, the bigger it can get. Learn More View Interactive Map

AB 3074 Introduces a New Defensible Space Zone

Prepare for wildfire and harden your home. Defensible space, coupled with home hardening, is essential to improve your home’s chance of surviving a wildfire. Defensible Space Zones (Zones 1 and 2) currently make up the 100 feet of defensible space required by law. A new Zone was introduced in Assembly Bill 3074 in 2020. This new law requires a third zone (Zone 0) to be defined and made part of the defensible space. It now requires the Board of Forestry and Fire Protection to develop the regulation by January 1, 2023. The board is to create a new ember-resistant zone (Zone 0) within 0 to 5 feet of a home.
