Legal Hotline

The Oregon Association of REALTORS® Legal Hotline provides subscribers the opportunity to ask real estate-related questions of an attorney specializing in real estate and contract law. OAR can support member subscribers on a variety of topics including disclosure, license law, contracts and offers.

Beginning January 1, 2005, the OAR Legal Hotline became available to all members on an individual subscription basis. Any member of the Oregon Association of REALTORS® may join the Legal Hotline whether his/her principal broker is a Hotline subscriber or not. If an individual broker joins the Hotline, the broker’s principal broker will be notified. Subscriptions to the Legal Hotline are valid for the calendar year and the fee is prorated for the month you join.

The cost for a one year Legal Hotline subscription is $125 per individual subscription. The Legal Hotline is open Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (except on holidays and during NAR and OAR conventions). Subscribers may e-mail questions to the Legal Hotline at any time and can expect an answer within 24 hours (excluding weekends and holidays). Changing brokerages or type of license will not affect an individual’s subscription or access to the Legal Hotline.

Why Subscribe to the Legal Hotline?

“The Legal Hotline has been a valuable tool that has brought clear and sensible legal advice in situations where we needed a quick consult with a legal professional.”
Alec Armour, Windermere Real Estate/Lane County- Eugene

“Since day one, the service has beyond exceeded our expectations – In every instance, our responses were prompt, the advice was extremely concise and reassuring, and the attorneys were supportive listeners and brilliant problem solvers. This is a service we will never do without and worth the cost many times over.”
Devri Doty, Windermere Pacific Crest Realty- McMinnville

“As a Principal Broker, I have found the Legal Hotline to be one of the most important services OAR provides – it is invaluable. I have received prompt answers on many things, such as: complex land-use issues, Real Estate law interpretations, and a layman’s explanation of my rights/responsibilities under complex legal points.”
Larry Frank, Retired Principal Broker- Medford

“The Legal Hotline is a very important part of OAR and I have valued the advice many times over the 17 years I have been licensed in Oregon.”
