Are there any exceptions for providing the Information About Brokerage Services form?

Yes. A license holder is not required to provide the notice if any of these situations applies:

  • The proposed transaction is for a residential lease of less than one year and a sale is not being considered
  • The license holder meets with a party who the license holder knows is represented by another license holder
  • The communication occurs during an open house for any prospective buyer or tenant and the communication concerns that specific property.
