BROKERS may not refuse equivalent professional services® to a person on the basis of race, colour, religion, sex, disability, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity. Real estate agents are not parties® to any plan or agreement to discriminate against any person or person on the basis of race, colour, religion, sex, disability, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity. (Amended 1/14) For the protection of all parties, REALTORS ensures, to the extent possible, that all agreements® relating to real estate transactions, including but not limited to registration and representation contracts, purchase agreements and lease agreements, are concluded in writing in clear and understandable language, expressing the specific conditions, obligations and obligations of the parties. A copy of each agreement shall be made available to each party to such agreements at the time of their signature or initialling. (Modified 1/04) [listen] The reader should be aware of the following guidelines, which have been approved by the Board of Directors of the National Association: Real estate® agents acting as agents or brokers of buyers/tenants must submit all offers and counter-offers to buyers/tenants until they are accepted, but are not required to continue showing properties to their clients after the acceptance of an offer, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Real estate® agents acting as buyers/tenants` agents or brokers recommend that buyers/tenants seek the advice of a lawyer if there is a matter of terminating an existing contract. (adopted on 1/93, amended on 1/99) Real estate agents acting as representatives or brokers of the buyer ® or tenant will disclose this relationship to the seller/landlord`s representative or broker at first contact and confirm this disclosure to the agent/landlord or broker no later than after the conclusion of a purchase contract or lease. (Modified 1/04) Like the listing agreement with sellers, agreements with buyers must have a start and end date and specify how the buyer`s broker (by the seller or by the buyer himself) is to be paid. It should also set out the obligations and obligations of all parties. [Citation needed] The obligation to present to the public a true picture in the representations includes the information presented, provided or displayed® on the websites of the real estate agents.
REALTORS makes reasonable efforts® to ensure that the information on its websites is up to date. If it turns out that the information on a real estate agent`s website is no longer up to date or correct, real estate agents will take corrective action immediately. (Adopted on 1/07) If real estate agents are involved in the sale or rental of a residence, real estate agents cannot provide voluntary® information about the racial, religious or ethnic composition of a neighborhood or engage in activities that can lead to panic sales®. ® However, real estate agents can provide other demographic® information. (adopted on 1/94, amended on 1/06) The fact that a potential client has engaged a real estate® agent as an exclusive agent or exclusive broker in one or more previous transactions does not prevent other real estate agents from seeking the future activities of® that potential client. (Modified 1/04) Recognizing that cooperation with other real estate professionals promotes the best interests of those who use their® services, REALTORS urges the exclusive representation of clients; do not attempt to gain an unfair advantage over their competitors; And they refrain from making unsolicited comments about other practitioners. In cases where their opinion is solicited or when real estate agents feel that a comment is necessary, their opinion will be offered in an objective and professional manner, without being influenced® by personal motivations or potential benefits or gains. REAL ESTATE AGENTS will not recommend or offer to a client or client the use of the services of another organization or business unit in which they have a direct interest, without disclosing that interest at the time of the recommendation or proposal®. (Amended 5/88) Real estate agents are required to make reasonable efforts before entering into an agency contract to determine whether the interested party is subject to a valid® exclusive agreement in force to provide the same type of real estate services.
(Modified 1/04) REALTORS® is free to establish contractual relationships or negotiate with sellers/owners, buyers/tenants or other persons who are not subject to an exclusive agreement but do not knowingly oblige them to pay more than one commission, except with their informed consent. (Amended 1/98) Factors that are defined as “irrelevant” by law or regulation or that are expressly identified in statutes or regulations as not subject to disclosure are not considered “relevant” for the purposes of section 2. (adopted on 1/93) If the REAL ESTATE AGENTS are contacted by the client of another REAL ESTATE® AGENT about the creation of an exclusive relationship to provide the same type of service and the REAL ESTATE AGENTS have not initiated such discussions, directly or indirectly, they may discuss the conditions under which®® they could conclude a future agreement or, alternatively, enter into an agreement that will enter into force upon the expiry of an existing exclusive agreement. (Amended 1/98) All transactions with exclusively registered properties or with buyers/tenants subject to an exclusive agreement will be carried out with the client`s representative or broker and not with the client, unless there is the consent of the client`s representative or broker or unless such transactions are initiated by the client. In the event that REALTORS®` clients wish to arbitrate or arbitrate contractual disputes arising out of real estate transactions, REALTORS will arbitrate or arbitrate such disputes in accordance with the policies of the Board of Directors, ® provided that the clients agree to be bound by any resulting agreement or award. Article 16 (Case interpretations for Article 16) Real estate agents may not engage in any practice or take measures contrary to the exclusive representation or exclusive brokerage agreements that other real estate®® agents have with clients. (Modified 1/04) [listen] Real estate agents will not be subject to any disciplinary proceedings®® before more than one board of directors of real estate agents or any affiliated institution, company or board of which they are members, in connection with alleged violations of the Code of Ethics in connection with the same transaction or event. . .
