Sample Waivers
In light of the recently approved changes to NAR policies 7.42 and 7.43 many of our members are looking for examples of MLS subscription waivers. Please post your experiences and questions here for the community to answer. Additional example waivers and information is accessible on the NAR site here: https://www.nar.realtor/about-nar/policies/discussion-of-mls-policy-statement-742-jurisdiction-of-association-multiple-listing-services

Forgive me if this has been asked and answered. Regarding MLS of choice, what is NARs definition of an MLS? If the optional MLS is not Realtor association owned does it need to conform to some definition to be considered an option under the NAR rule?

 Hi Kevin, NAR's definition of an MLS Is: A multiple listing service is a means by which authorized participants make blanket unilateral offers of compensation to other participants (acting as subagents, buyer agents, or in other agency or nonagency capacities defined by law); by which cooperation among participants is enhanced, by which information is accumulated and disseminated to enable authorized participants to prepare appraisals, analyses, and other valuations of real property for bona fide clients and customers; by which participants engaging in real estate appraisal contribute to common databases; and is a facility for the orderly correlation and dissemination of listing information so participants may better serve their clients and the public.
