Inappropriate Language Policy
The ARMLS® Inappropriate Language Policy, adopted by the ARMLS Board of Directors, addresses the use of language in the public Remarks and Directions fields in flexmls. The intent of a written language policy is to protect the security and safety of the owners and occupants in the property, safeguard all parties against unwarranted legal liability and deter unfair competitive advantage in regard to compensation among agents.
Language that violates Federal Fair Housing Laws is also prohibited. It also relegates commission information to the appropriate fields, addresses bonuses and prohibits any monetary value items which may appear to steer a prospective buyer’s agent to show the listing over another property.
