Protecting Consumers When Retiring or Selling

NY LS/PE CE: (Pending)

As surveyors age, retirement from a large company or selling the business in a small company become major topics. Protecting the privacy and rights of the consumer are very important for many reasons, including retaining the client for the future of the company. The Consumer Bill of Rights requires a consumer to receive competent professional services, which includes protection of their privacy and continuation of professional services through a transition. The options for transition will be discussed, along with the importance of timely notification to consumers of the transition. Assembling a transition team, preparation for a transition, and important items for selection of suitor will be discussed.


Seminar Goals and Objectives

  1. Explain the importance of consumer protection in responsible charge transition
  2. Explain the importance of a long-range plan for transition
  3. List the tools necessary for continued communication with the consumer
