Real Estate Law Section
Due to the fact that our next regularly scheduled Tuesday breakfast meeting conflicts with election day, that meeting has been rescheduled. The next BAMC Real Estate Section meeting will be held Tuesday, December 13, 2016.
We will be joined by two of our colleagues from Montgomery County: Tracy D. Rezvani, Administrator of the Montgomery County Office of Consumer Protection, and Peter Drymalski, Esq., staff counsel for the Montgomery County Commission on Common Ownership Communities (CCOC).
- The Montgomery County Office of Consumer Protection (OCP), is responsible for enforcing consumer protection laws to ensure a fair marketplace for consumers and businesses. Its investigators have expertise in many types of consumer transactions and they investigate and resolve consumer complaints, engage in consumer education and outreach, license certain businesses, and administer several programs. Of relevance to the Real Estate Section, the OCP administers the Estimate Real Property calculator, with the assistance of the Board of Registration for Building Contractors licenses new home builders, enforces the County’s new home warranty law, engages in enforcement actions against unlicensed contractors, and investigates complaints involving home improvement. The OCP also provides free mediation services to consumers and to merchants and otherwise welcomes the involvement of counsel in the process.
- The CCOC conducts administrative hearings on disputes between members of condominium and homeowner associations and issues binding decisions. The CCOC also provides a mandatory training class for directors of the associations and is an advocate for the well-being of the County’s 1000+ community associations.
The meeting will be held at 8:00 a.m. in the Sixth Floor Conference Center at Shulman Rogers’ offices at 12505 Park Potomac Avenue, Potomac, MD 20854, and breakfast will be provided. RSVPs are appreciated to Donna Olenick at DOlenick@shulmanrogers.com.
If you have suggestions for speakers and topics of discussion at our breakfast meetings, or at section-sponsored CLE, we would love to hear them. Please contact either Section Co-Chair at
