Legal Hotline

The REALTORS® Legal Hotline is a service which provides members of the Colorado Association of REALTORS® with direct access to a qualified real estate attorney who can offer information on real estate law and related matters. The Hotline provides legal information, not legal representation.

How do I use the Legal Hotline?

The principal broker and one additional designee from each REALTOR® office are allowed access to the Hotline. Each user will be assigned a unique Hotline Identification Number. Your name and ID number will provide verification that you are an authorized caller. Legal information will be given at the time of your call or within one business day if research is required.
