It depends on your state's laws. If you have an interest in a property, are involved in a personal transaction, or are representing a relative, in my state you need to disclose that. Doesn't matter who signs documents... you are still involved with the family. You can never go wrong with total disclosure. You can only go wrong when you don't disclose.

Yes, you can represent them. And yes, you should disclose your relationship. Why wouldn't you? Not only will it keep you out of trouble, but the best negotiators let the other guy know who you are and what you want. It is so simple to say "Agent is related to Buyer", or something similar.
