Important Change to Code of Ethics for 2019
National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) has modified Standard of Practice 1-7 to include "Upon the written request of a cooperating broker who submits an offer to the listing broker, the listing broker shall provide a written affirmation to the cooperating broker stating that the offer has been submitted to the seller/landlord, or a written notification that the seller/ landlord has waived the obligation to have the offer presented." NAR defines broker as a "real estate licensee (including brokers and sales associates) acting as an agent or in a legally recognized non-agency capacity".

While a written affirmation could be in the form of an email, GHAR has also created a form just for this purpose. This form does NOT NEED to be signed every time an offer is submitted. It is only required if requested by the cooperating broker/agent. Additionally, the Code of Ethics only requires that the listing broker/agent provide the written affirmation, therefore this form does not need to be signed by the seller. If you have any questions about this form, or the process, please call Shelley Devanney at 860-561-1800.
