Why Take the Accredited Elite Advocate Program?
Real estate agents who wish to take professionalism to the next level will find this program an incredible resource.
The group leader, Brian Madigan will take you through the material in a workshop format designed to encourage participation and learning.
You will understand and appreciate the history and development of the law of agency and its application in today’s legal environment. You need to anticipate the direction of the law, so you will be able to plan for your clients’ needs and requirements. What is expected of you? What laws will apply? What is the standard of care? How do you know if you are negligent? What qualifies as a misrepresentation? What are the specific remedies for misrepresentations in real property law, in contract law and in tort law, and why are they different?
The law is always evolving. It’s important to know what the laws will be, rather than what they used to be. How will you be equipped to answer this question? What did the Supreme Court of Canada recently say about the duties and responsibilities of agents? What did they say about disclosure?
Brian Madigan with over 25 years of legal experience in civil litigation defending professionals in agency relationships will emphasize the role of informed consent in the practice of real estate.
You will learn to anticipate problems and take risk avoidance measures at the outset. You will study the requirements for full and partial disclosure, both statutory and the common law. Don’t forget about the conflict with privacy laws. You will test the limits of “real estate” in terms of attachment (fixtures and chattels, and learn the 13 Rules), boundaries (surveys, trees, waterfront and possession issues), owners and ownership (attorneys, estates and trustees). You will also learn the limitations of “real property” and its distinction from “real estate”.
You will learn what you need to know about family law and the matrimonial home. You will review the documentation and understand the legal implications. The underlying theme in all of the material is risk management and the role of the professional agent.
After taking the course, you will be making some changes to your practice for the better. Those changes will safeguard your reputation in the industry and your financial bottom line. Hundreds of pages of material will be included.
The program concludes with an examination and candidates will be entitled to use the designation “Accredited Elite Advocate” (AEA) to denote successful completion of the course.

Here are some of the details about the program itself:
Accredited Elite Advocate
Two day Program
This program is designed to ensure that the participant will learn to apply the law in a meaningful way. There are more laws than just the very basics. By becoming aware of the application, interaction and conflict among the various statutes, common law, and cases, the real estate practitioner will develop a series of defences in the management of their businesses. This is the underlying element in risk management.
The practitioner will write an examination at the conclusion of the program to ensure that they have acquired the fundamental principles. Successful candidates will earn the “AEA” or “Accredited Elite Advocate” designation awarded by the HarvardNorth Real Estate Academy.
