Legal Lines – Question of the Month

With the help of McClelland & Anderson, we are taking the most recently asked questions from our legal hotline and putting them in E-news. We will be featuring a different question each issue.

I am a licensed real estate agent. Whenever I host an open house, I have my unlicensed assistant accompany me to answer the door and ask prospective buyers fill in a register. Several agents have told me that unlicensed assistants cannot attend open houses. Is this correct?    
IT DEPENDS. A non-licensee cannot independently conduct an open house. The manner described above is allowable since the unlicensed assistant is acting as a host/hostess and not performing any licensed activities.
