With regard to NAR Standard of Practice 1-7, which was put in place earlier this year, NYSAR has created a form that may be used for this purpose and that form is also now on Grar.org and in TransactionDesk. Please note that the
Request for Affirmation of Presentation of Purchase Offer
form is an optional form. There is no “required” language and it can be extremely simple or as complex as you want to make it (ex. It can be an email request).
Here is the Standard of Practice in full:
When acting as listing brokers, REALTORS® shall continue to submit to the seller/landlord all offers and counter-offers until closing or execution of a lease unless the seller/landlord has waived this obligation in writing.
Upon the written request of a cooperating broker who submits an offer to the listing broker, the listing broker shall provide a written affirmation to the cooperating broker stating that the offer has been submitted to the seller/landlord, or a written notification that the seller/ landlord has waived the obligation to have the offer presented.
REALTORS® shall not be obligated to continue to market the property after an offer has been accepted by the seller/landlord. REALTORS® shall recommend that sellers/landlords obtain the advice of legal counsel prior to acceptance of a subsequent offer except where the acceptance is contingent on the termination of the pre-existing purchase contract or lease. (Amended 1/19)
