Are You Getting Notified of Rule Changes?

Did you know that you can opt-in to be notified of any proposed or final rule changes?  It’s a quick and easy process to subscribe to “rulemaking.”

What is Rulemaking? 

Rulemaking is the process by which the Commission implements or clarifies real estate brokerage procedure or practice requirements through the adoption, amendment, or repeal of rules. During permanent rulemaking, the Commission proposes rule language and sends it to the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH). OAH publishes the proposed rule text in the North Carolina Register which provides notices to interested parties that the Commission has started the process to amend, adopt, or repeal a rule.

Why Should You Subscribe to Rulemaking?

  • Be the first to know – get advance notice of all rule changes.
  • Receive notice of an opportunity to submit comments – in writing or in person.
  • Be aware as a broker-in-charge of upcoming rule changes that might affect your company’s brokerage practices.

Does This Subscription Provide Notice of Changes to Forms and General Statutes? No. Most forms are published by the North Carolina Association of REALTORS® (NCAR). NCAR publishes (to their members) a summary of changes to forms as soon as the new forms are released. General Statutes are enacted by the North Carolina General Assembly.

You can view the status of proposed bills (changes to General Statutes) or the final General Statutes online.  Statutes related to real estate are also published in the Commission’s License Law and Commission Rules booklet and the most pertinent changes are addressed in the Commission’s annual Update courses.
