Compliance Blog: Rental Remarks Part 1

Connecticut rentals and using remarksWe recently discussed how to use the public remarks section in your for sale listings, but what about when you have a Connecticut rental? With pressures on you from the landlord to include certain comments in the remarks section, what is truly acceptable?

“Back ground check required”.

Often time’s landlords will ask agents to place comments in the remarks of MLS rental listings.

Remember that remarks should be used to describe the property only, what you cannot see from the pictures. Remarks should not be used to describe tenants nor should it be used to weed out potential tenants. The landlord can ask for information from the potential tenant as part of the application process at which point it is on the landlord’s head if that information is gathered or used for an improper purpose. Agents are placing listing in the MLS to share only.

If you have questions about using the remarks section with your rental listing, leave them in the comments below and we’ll get them answered for everyone.
