NYSAR Legal Answer Service

The New York State Association of REALTORS® is pleased to provide one of the most beneficial member services within the REALTOR® organization - the Legal Hotline.

The NYSAR Legal Hotline is not intended to replace your own legal counsel. The NYSAR Legal Hotline has one purpose: to provide direct access for our members to a qualified attorney who can provide information on real estate matters. The goal is to increase professionalism and decrease your professional liability.

The Legal Hotline will answer calls from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays and during official NYSAR functions. The Legal Hotline number is 518-43-NYSAR (518-436-9727). Before using the hotline, callers should formulate a clear question and gather the relevant facts.  No question will be answered on matters that are unrelated to real estate or that are currently in legal proceedings.  Callers are required to give their name in order to verify membership.  No questions will be answered if an individual refuses to give his/her name.


Questions received enable the association to track issues of concern to its members and develop educational programs and services, legislative responses or NYSAR publications to address the issues.
