Responding to Rule Changes: Contact Your MLA

Feb 28, 2019



REALTORS® all around the province have serious concerns about the new rules affecting limited dual agency and disclosure, set to take effect on March 15, 2018. BCREA and the real estate boards are taking action, and we need REALTOR® support.

While the Real Estate Council of British Columbia is working hard to prepare for these changes, the new disclosure forms won't be available until early March, and educational courses for REALTORS® may not be developed until the spring.

These changes are significant and the timeline is short. BCREA is concerned there's not enough time for REALTORS® to prepare for these new rules.

We've launched a campaign for REALTORS® to send letters to your MLAs asking for an extended implementation period to the end of 2018. This will give Council enough time to engage with consumers, prepare materials and educate consumers and REALTORS®, so you can represent your clients' interests in line with the new rules. This extension would also allow full consideration of the impacts of the changes.

Use our REALTOR® Action Network tool now to send your email. Simply enter your information, and the site will automatically select your MLA (all emails will also be sent to the Office of the Superintendent of Real Estate, the Council and Minister of Finance Carole James).

For more information on the new rules, visit Council's FAQ page here.
