Are You Ready for 2022? GAR Forms Changes are Coming!
Each year, the GAR Forms (GA Assoc. of REALTORS® official real estate forms) – the most widely used real estate forms in Georgia – is revised and updated to reflect changes in our customs and practices, to adapt to changes in the case law, to conform with changing laws and regulations .
Some years, the changes are significant, other years, not so much. But the process of getting to this point is a long an arduous one for the GAR Forms Committee.
Having served on the GAR Forms Committee for several years, I had the privilege of serving as vice-chairman of the committee in 2020 and then as chairman this year in 2021. It’s been a wild and bumpy ride – what with COVID causing us to address issues we’d never anticipated and then dealing with this crazy, extreme seller’s market where it seemed a lot of buyers had lost their minds taking a lot of risks – often against our advice! – willing to waive all sorts of rights and protections in a competitive bid to have their offer accepted in multiple offer situations.
Well, it’s December and now it’s time to ensure all of our members and users of the forms familiarize themselves with the changes!
To that end, we are partnering with the Golden Isles Assoc. of REALTORS® (GIAR) once again to offer four upcoming GAR Forms Updates classes. Registration is handled by GIAR at http://MyGIAR.com and will be held live, in person, in the Training Room at 1801 Gloucester Street, Brunswick, GA 31520 and the schedule is as follows:
- Wednesday, December 15, 2021 – 9:00am – 12:00pm
- Tuesday, January 4, 2022 – 9:00am – 12:00pm
- Tuesday, January 4, 2022 – 1:30pm – 4:30pm
- Monday, January 10, 2022 – 9:00am – 12:00pm
Join us and make sure you are ready for 2022!
