Antitrust 101 for Real Estate Professionals
NAR Legal Affairs has created a video to educate real estate professionals about antitrust laws, including the severe penalties for violating antitrust law. The video uses real-world settings like social media or at an office meeting to demonstrate the scenarios that a real estate professional may face, such as invitations to join a group boycott or engage in price fixing. The video offers tips and solutions on how to avoid these situations and there are also quiz questions so that viewers can test their knowledge. LIBOR members can access the video for free, here.

State Legislature Scheduled to End Session June 10
NYSAR has been engaging Senators and Assembly members on a number of outstanding issues, including support of coop transparency and opposition to good cause eviction, the Community Climate Investment Act, a required lead paint test disclosure during real estate transactions, local community preservation fund taxes and multiple local real estate transaction tax extenders. This week, NYSAR discussed with Senate and Assembly staff our concerns with a fair housing phone hotline and disclosure bill, resulting in successful amendments to the bill removing unnecessary burdens and liabilities on real estate brokers. Lawmakers are also considering a package of gun control bills, criminal justice reforms, and an adult abuse survivor’s act. Read more here.
Assembly Passes Series of Fair Housing Bills
On June 3, the Assembly passed a pair of fair housing bills which NYSAR supports. To read NYSAR’s memo in support of the legislation, click here. The following bills passed both the Senate and Assembly and will be delivered to Gov. Andrew Cuomo for his consideration within the year.
  • S.538-B/A.4638-A: Adds 2 hours of implicit bias education within the 22.5 hours of CE requirements.
  • S.2132-B/A.5359: Increases pre-licensing broker and salesperson course hours and requires instructors’ compliance in course education under oath.
Additional fair housing bills are expected to be voted on next week, including but not limited to (S.2157-A/A.6355) to require two years of experience as an associate broker before designation as an office manager and (S.2133-A.5363) to add a $30 and $10 surcharge to the license renewal fee for brokers and salespersons, respectively. NYSAR’s Legislative Steering Committee voted to support both bills as well.
