Welcome to 2023! If you still have room on your plate for some New Year’s resolutions, here’s a top 10 of work-related items you could add to your list. Heck, I’ll even throw in links to PAR JustListed articles that will help you keep these resolutions (if you promise to read them and share them with others you work with).
Each of these resolutions reflects one of the more regular types of tickets that the PAR Legal Hotline deals with, so the more of these you can implement the less often you’ll have to call us (and the less often we’ll have to respond to a call with “actually… we just published an article about this…”).
I resolve to read all about how the return of deposits clause in paragraph 26(C) worksbefore I call the hotline and ask a series of questions that are all answered in the existing PAR JustListed article. And I resolve to send that link to the agent/broker on the other side of a transaction rather than arguing over the intent of the paragraph. And if I’m a broker or manager, I resolve to send that link to every single agent in my office so they can understand the process.
I resolve that I won’t do the cool thing that some guru tells me to do without understanding whether/how it is legal in Pennsylvania. And that goes double for money-related things that are likely to get my broker in trouble too.
I resolve to use the extensive (and very insightful and well-written) resources that PAR already provides to me before I call the hotline, including – but not limited to – PAR JustListed and the Guidelines for Preparation and Use that are published for every PAR standard form. And I will absolutely discuss my issues/problems/questions with my broker or manager – ideally before, but definitely after, every time I call the hotline.
