Information About Brokerage Services & Consumer Protection Notice

Section 1101.558(c) of the Real Estate License Act requires that a licensee furnish the written statement contained in the form to a party to a real estate transaction at the time of the first substantive dialogue with the party. The Real Estate License Act defines “substantive dialogue” to mean a meeting or written communication that involves a substantive discussion relating to specific real property. The term does not include a meeting at an open house or a meeting or written communication that occurs after the parties to a transaction have signed a contract or lease. In the situation you describe, the Real Estate License Act would require you to provide the form to the prospective buyer when you first meet him at the listed home.
