NAR® Ethics Enforcement Update

NAR® Board of Directors have given associations new teeth for enforcing Code of Ethics violations.

Under changes to the NAR® Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual, local associations that choose to adopt the policy can publicize the names of members and the nature of their violations after a second violation of the Code of Ethics. They can also release a photograph of the member as part of that public disclosure.

Also, there are changes to how the listing broker or agent responds to an offer. View pdf NAR ethics enforcement may 19 2018 (51 KB) for all of the details.
