The New York Department of State (DOS) has prepared an advertising checklist and guidance to help licensed real estate brokers and salespeople comply with these regulations and advertise properly. Following these rules may help you avoid fines or other discipline and help protect the public from misleading or inappropriate advertising.
Pursuant to Article 12 A of the New York State Real Property Law §443, real estate licensees must present the New York State Agency Disclosure Form to sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants for their signatures at the first substantive contact. Real estate licensees in New York are also required to present the New York State Housing and Anti-Discrimination Disclosure Form to all prospective purchasers, tenants, sellers or landlords of all real property upon first substantive contact. Real estate licensees must also provide all prospective tenants at first substantive contact with a Notice Disclosing Tenants’ Rights to Reasonable Accommodations for Persons with Disabilities.
