Supra Sunday Part 10: Where Not To Place a Lockbox
Does RLCAR MLS have rules on lockbox placement?
In short, we don’t dictate in our rules where a lockbox must be placed on a listing. We do, however, have some tips.
1. Think of your fellow brokers when placing a lockbox. Make sure you keep them easily reachable and accessible.
2. Supra iBox BTLE are designed to be placed on door knobs. The shackle comes off every time.
3. Many utility providers have rules against attaching any item (including lockboxes) on gas, water, and electric meters or lines. Placing a lockbox on a gas meter or other utility is a safety concern. There is also the possibility of damaging the property
4. Try to place the lockbox on an item that is attached to the property and not easily moved or stolen.
