Take Action Now - Stop Patent Trolls
REALTORS® across the country have received threatening demand letters and lawsuits alleging patent infringement based on the use of common business tools. Avoid being sued. Tell your U.S. Representative to support H.R. 9, the Innovation Act to stop patent trolls and protect the real estate industry from frivolous lawsuits. Take action now!  

Real Advocacy for REALTORS®: Share Your TOPA Horror Stories
Some have voiced concerns that the District's Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act (TOPA) is onerous and confusing...get the details in Real Advocacy for REALTORS®, GCAAR's public policy brief.
 

New Required DC Rental Disclosure: Tenant Bill of Rights
Effective July 3, 2015, landlords in the District of Columbia are required to provide ALL RENTAL APPLICANTS with a copy of the Tenant Bill of Rights, along with the other respective disclosure documents that are required under DC's Rental Housing Act.

The Office of Tenant Advocate has stated all "prospective tenants" in the District of Columbia must be provided a copy of the Tenant Bill of Rights upon "filing an application to lease any rental unit" and stated that it would be prudent for REALTORS® to attach a copy of the Tenant Bill of Rights to all rental applications. The Tenant Bill of Rights will be available on GCAAR's website and via zipForm®.

If you have any questions or concerns, such as when to purchase the Tenant Bill of Rights, we highly encourage you to contact DC's Office of the Tenant Advocate at (202) 719-6560.  

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
