C.A.R. LEGAL HOTLINE
The C.A.R. Legal Hotline is a free services for members seeking confidential legal advice about real estate issues. Members may use the hotline if they have questions about contract interpretation, arbitration, litigation, tax issues, commission disputes, disclosure requirements, fair housing issues, HOA laws, and more.
Attorneys are available Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM PST; Saturday, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Due to limited staffing on Saturdays, the hotline is restricted for only those questions relating to active transactions.
Whether you submit questions online, by email, or fax, please keep your descriptions brief (2-3 short paragraphs; maximum 2,000 characters). The system will cut off messages longer than 2,000 characters. However, you may provide more detailed information when you speak directly with a C.A.R. attorney.
Note: When the hotline is flooded with inquiries you may experience a delayed response–from several hours, to days. Your patience is appreciated.
9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

C.A.R. Ombudsmen are REALTOR volunteers who volunteer their time to answer non-legal questions and assist in resolving non-legal disputes.
Should you need assistance with the disciplinary process, CCAR will provide an Ethics Advocate to help you complete the complaint process and represent you throughout the ethics hearing procedures.
