For most buyers and sellers, real estate transactions represent the biggest financial and emotional investments of their lives. Because real estate agents and brokers are not allowed to provide legal advice, buyers and sellers sometimes have questions about the sales process, tax ramifications, and other questions that only attorneys can answer.
Arrive Real Estate Group is proud to offer our clients Buyer and Seller Protection Plans, provided by Real Estate Risk Management, Inc., to fill this void. These plans can provide you with peace of mind by giving you access to a team of legal professionals before, during and after the close of escrow. Legal questions may arise at any time during your transaction. RERM’s Panel Attorneys can assist you with a wide variety of legal questions; providing assistance should you need it for the sale or purchase of your property. Our goal is to help you resolve disputes before they turn into lawsuits.
The Buyer & Seller Protection Plans provides you with the following protections and services:
Up to 30 minutes of telephone consultation per nondispute, transactional legal matter with a licensed real estate attorney. There is no limit on the number of matters eligible for consults, as long as questions pertain to different legal concerns and are related to the property listed on the protection plan documents. Example: Disclosures, Bankruptcy, Deed in Lieu, Foreclosures, Title Issues, 1031 Exchange and more.
Up to ten (10) pages of document review by the panel attorney. Legal Advice is Available Before and One Year After the Close of Escrow.
Reduced Hourly Fee
Up to a 25% rate reduction off the normal and customary fees for any additional services that the buyer or seller requests from the participating attorney. *After the Close of Escrow

Services covered under the plan include:
Self-help guidelines for communicating your claim to the adverse party, including sample demand letters.
Informal mediation services to bring about early resolution of most disputes—with a success rate above 96%.
