Real Estate Shareholder Scott A. Marcus has been reappointed to the Florida Realtor-Attorney Joint Committee. The 22 member committee is made up of eleven attorneys appointed by The Florida Bar and eleven Realtor®/broker members appointed by Florida Realtors®. Mr. Marcus has served on the Committee since 2017 and will continue to represent the 4th Appellate District for another two-year term commencing January 1, 2020.
The committee is responsible for rewriting the FAR/BAR Contract, the most widely used residential purchase contract in the state of Florida. The updated version of the FAR/BAR contract is expected to be rolled out in early 2020.
