Your obligation to provide proof offers were presented or rejected.
Listing agents have an obligation under both License Law and under the REALTOR® Code of Ethics to provide the buyer's agent/buyer proof that an offer was presented or rejected. The time frame for providing such documentation is as soon as practical (license law) or upon request (Code of Ethics).
License Law - General Rules 3.1 H:
When an offer is made on a property owned by a party with whom a broker has entered into a listing agreement, such broker shall document and date the seller's personal acceptance or rejection of the offer and upon written request, shall provide a copy of such document to the person making the offer. (Complaints alleging license law violations are filed with the Mississippi Real Estate Commission)
REALTOR® Code of Ethics – Article 1, Standard of Practice 1-7 (in part):
When acting as listing brokers, REALTORS® shall continue to submit to the seller all offers and counteroffers until closing or execution of a sale unless the seller has waived the obligation in writing. Upon the written request of a cooperating broker who submits an offer to the listing broker, the listing broker shall provide, as soon as practical, a written affirmation to the cooperating broker stating that the offer has been submitted to the seller, or a written notification that the seller has waived the obligation to have the offer presented.
The Association's Ethics Citation Policy includes the Standard of Practice 1-7, shown above. When a complainant files a written complaint, the respondent has a choice to either pay a $250 fine considering the matter closed – or – defend the actions in a due process hearing before an ethics hearing panel. The complaint form is part of the Citation Policy.
