Legal Assistance Hotline
One of the most valuable services OAR offers to its members is the Legal Assistance Hotline. This toll-free hotline will connect you to a staff attorney who can answer any type of legal question with regards to the real estate industry. This hotline is free of charge unless a written opinion is needed–then a minimal $25 will be charged. Because OAR has over 27,000 members, and only two part-time attorneys on staff, this hotline can only be accessed by principal brokers and their designated office managers who hold an active real estate license. If you’re a sales associate and need a legal opinion, please ask your Principal Broker or designated office manager to make the call. Principal brokers can telephone Arica Jones at 614.225.6218 for their password, or to register an office manager for the free service.
Hotline hours: 9 a.m.-Noon and from 1:30-4 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
