MLS Rules & Regulations Revisions: Clear Cooperation Fine Policy
At their July meeting the Board of Directors voted to adopt the Clear Cooperation Fine Policy that was recommended by MLS committee. This fine policy will go into effect on October 1, 2020. 1.1.1 Clear Cooperation Fine Policy 1st offense: a warning email is sent to the Subscriber and their Participant, allowing 24 (twenty-four) hours from the time of notice to correct the violation and advising that when the 24 (twenty-four) hours has passed that a $10 per day fine will begin until the violation is corrected. "Corrected" means the listing is either entered in the MLS for cooperation with other MLS participants and subscribers, OR, all public advertising has been removed. 2nd offense: immediate $50 fine, plus $10 per day until corrected. 3rd offense: immediate $100 fine, plus $10 per day until corrected. 4th offense: the participant/subscriber’s membership with the RLCAR MLS is put up for review by the RLCAR Board of Directors. They will determine the appropriate course of action (additional fines, suspension, or even termination of the individual’s membership).
