Remember the goal of our compliance program is not to collect fines, but to correct the data! We seek to ensure the MLS is a trading platform for our members with relevant, timely, accurate, and reliable data. If you are unclear on a rule or uncertain as to procedure, please contact your NNRMLS Team. We are happy to help!
Please visit our office and ask for our handy 2-sided Rules & Regs Card, printed on a heavy coated card stock that will withstand wear as you refer to it often.
