Did you know that although a Wisconsin licensed realtor is allowed to use certain pre-drafted forms for the purchase or sale of a home, they “May not provide advice or opinions concerning the legal rights or obligations of the parties to a transaction , the legal effect of a specific contract or conveyance, or the state of tile to real estate.” ? Only a licensed attorney can give you legal advice in the State of Wisconsin.
See Wisconsin Administrative Code Chapter REEB 16 (reproduced below):
REEB 16.05 Legal advice and practice of law.
(1) A licensee may not provide advice or opinions concerning the legal rights or obligations of parties to a transaction, the legal effect of a specific contract or conveyance, or the state of title to real estate.
(2) Notwithstanding sub. (1), a licensee may provide a general explanation of the provisions in an approved form to the parties to a transaction at the time of completing the form or when delivering an approved form for the seller's or buyer's acceptance.
(3) A licensee may use approved forms only in those transactions in which the licensee is acting in a capacity as licensee or in which the licensee is a principal, and in either case the use of such forms is incidental to the real estate practice of the licensee.
(4) A licensee may not make a separate charge for completing an approved form in connection with a transaction.
