Code of Ethics and Professional Practices
REBNY's members, and those affiliated with them, honor the Board's Code of Ethics. The Code, which applies to all Board members, clarifies licensees' responsibilities to their colleagues and to the public.
If an alleged Code violation involves an issue over money, the matter can be handled by voluntary mediation or binding arbitration. Non-monetary disputes are resolved by the Ethics Committee or its subcommittee of the Residential Brokerage Division.
The Residential Brokerage Division's RLS Universal Co-Brokerage Agreement Rules and Regulations supplement the Code of Ethics for residential practitioners. Members of REBNY's Residential Division must adhere to these Regulations.
By all members observing the Real Estate Board's Code of Ethics and Residential Brokerage Division members additionally following the RLS Universal Co-Brokerage Agreement Rules and Regulations, we provide fair treatment for all licensees participating in a transaction, and protect the interests of buyers and sellers.
