The Tennessee Real Estate Commission approved proposed rules at their regularly scheduled meeting on January 8, 2020 and were presented and voted on at a rulemaking hearing conducted on November 11, 2020. These rules were filed with the Secretary of State on January 22, 2021 and will become effective on April 22, 2021. The rules have been filed as Rulemaking Hearing Rules and will be promulgated ninety (90) days from the filing date.
The proposed rule is an amendment to the advertising rules set forth by the Commission. The rule amends one of the general principles. Previously, the rule required licensees to obtain written permission from the owner to advertise the property listed by another licensee. Now, the rule requires this authorization to come from the listing agent or listing broker.
