Each state has a real estate authority, which governs real estate transactions and administers the state's specific requirements and regulations. They are usually called the Real Estate Commission or Real Estate Division.

Your licensed real estate agent has received training and is well aware of your state's regulations and requirements. But if you are selling your home without an agent, it is important to contact the body that governs real estate transactions in your state. They can offer a wealth of information, tell you which forms you must complete, what disclosures you must provide, and a lot of other useful information to help ensure that your sale is legal and complies with all of your state's demands. They cannot give legal advice, however. You will need an attorney for those questions.
