The IAR legal department is a resource for only IAR members who need direction on what and where to find real estate legal related issues found in the Iowa Code, Iowa Administrative rules, federal and state case law, federal interpretations and local standards of practice.
It is also a source for the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, National Association of REALTORS® Multiple listing policy, and membership rules.
Although an attorney staffs the department and does provide guidance on specific issues which arise, there is not an attorney-client relationship formed, and members are always encouraged to seek their private attorney for legal advice. Please visit the Iowa State Bar Association to find a local attorney
The IAR legal department can be reached via the IAR legal hotline at 888-636-2622 or by emailing Paul McLaughlin
