Revisions to the Real Estate Services Rules, which include renumbering of sections and some minor language changes, are in effect as of August 1, 2021.
The renumbering ensures the Real Estate Services Rules align with provincial drafting standards. The revisions include some minor wording changes in various sections, and repeal sections that were duplicative and no longer needed. There is no change to the conduct requirements for licensed real estate professionals.
The renumbered Real Estate Services Rules are available on our website, along with amended forms, education course materials, and other resources. Any materials that cite the Real Estate Services Rules must be updated to reflect the new numbering and language. The work to update materials is ongoing and is expected to be completed later this year.
To assist with the transition, a Table of Concordance has been developed, which compares the provisions of the Real Estate Services Rules as they existed before the revisions with the Rules as they exist now. Section numbers and names from the previous Rules are given, along with their corresponding section numbers in the newly updated Rules.
