New Security Interest Rate Calculator
As of January 1, 2015, Maryland State law has lowered the security deposit interest rate required to be returned to renters from 3% to 1.5% or a rate equal to the US Treasury Daily Yield Curve Rate (whichever is higher).

The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development has now made a Security Interest Rate Calculator, along with useful practice guidance, available on their website here. Please note, this interest rate calculation only applies to residential tenancies with a tenancy start date on or after, January 1, 2015.  

Prevent SentriCard® Service Interruption. 
GCAAR would like to remind brokers and agents to not provide your SentriCard® or PIN number to another agent, assistant, family member, prospective buyer, etc. If a customer service representative becomes aware that your card is in possession of an "invalid cardholder", your SentriCard® will be terminated, immediately. Your card will not be reactivated until you visit a GCAAR office with a valid photo ID. View SentriLock rules and regulations
