RAHB has received complaints from members who have had an appointment for a showing only to discover afterwards, the property had a conditional offer and they were not notified of the status change by the listing REALTOR®. Effective immediately, the Board of Directors have approved the following rule which has been added to RAHB’s MLS® Rules and Regulations, Section 2 – MLS® Listings, Sub-Section 2.18 as follows:

If a member fails to comply and there is a complaint filed, this matter will be brought forward to the Professional Standards Committee.
