Real Estate Consultations
The Office of the Superintendent of Real Estate is requesting feedback on proposed rules governing the conduct of licensees providing real estate services in the Province of B.C.
The new rules address several of the recommendations of the Independent Advisory Group on real estate regulation in B.C. and aim to enhance consumer protection through a number of mandatory changes to licensee conduct and practices. Key rule changes include prohibiting the practice of dual agency, except in remote and under-served locations, and enhancing consumer education and awareness by increasing mandatory licensee disclosures regarding representation and remuneration.
Provide feedback on the proposed rules by filling out a survey. The survey will close on Friday, October 6, 2017 at 6:00 pm following a 30-day public consultation period. Survey responses are anonymous and will be kept confidential.
