**ATTENTION**

NEW MLS RULES AND REGULATIONS!

The Board of Directors are announcing that effective immediately, there will be no public marketing or any activity on a listing until it is live in the MLS. This means that if a listing agreement is signed on a Friday, but the listing is not live in the MLS until Monday, there will be absolutely no activity on the listing. Violations will be subject to fines beginning at $500. Also, effective immediately, participants and subscribers will now be able to close their own listings. This now means that when your listing closes, you will not have to wait for MLS staff to close it for you. You now have the ability to change it directly in Flexmls and either upload your Status Change Form in the Documents section (it is a private document) or email it to info@yarmls.com. However, if you prefer that the MLS staff close your listing, we still will gladly offer that service for your convenience. Late fees will still apply if closings are not filed to the MLS by 5:00 p.m. by the next business day.

Section 1             NO ACTIVITY: At no point before going active (live) on the MLS will there be any activity on a listing. Activity includes, but not limited to, Social Media, marketing, open houses, signage, posting on websites such as Craigslist and other web marketplaces, and more. Violators will be fined $500 for their first offense, $1,000 for their second offence, and three or more violations will be subject for review by the Board of Directors and may include probation, suspension, or expulsion from the MLS. Fines will be $500 for the first offence; $1,000 for the second offence and three or more offences will be subject for Board Review
 
Section 1.5          CLOSING A LISTING: Listing participants, subscribers, or authorized personnel having access to the MLS Electronic Database under the Designated Broker will have the ability to close their listings in the database. Closings must be made by 5:00 p.m. the next business day with the change form uploaded to their listing documents. MLS Staff will be in contact if information needs to be corrected.
