As a result of reoccurring safety concerns regarding the lack of protocol when entering and accessing properties, the following rules have been adopted for inclusion within the GSREIN MLS Rules & Regulations:
 
Section 2. SHOWINGS AND NEGOTIATIONS: Appointments for showings and negotiations with the seller for the purchase of listed property filed with the Multiple Listing Service shall be conducted through the listing broker except under the following circumstances: 
 
(a)  The listing broker gives the cooperating broker specific authority to show and/or negotiate directly in the "Agent Remarks" section of the M.L.S., or 
 
(b) After reasonable effort, the cooperating broker cannot contact the listing broker or his representative. However, the listing broker, at his option, may preclude such direct negotiations by cooperating brokers. 
 
(c)  No one shall enter a listed property without authorization. All appointments for a listed property must be authorized through ShowingTime or the listing agent/broker, or as otherwise indicated in the Private Remarks of the M.L.S.
 
(d) Once a licensed agent/broker grants access to the property to any third party, they MUST remain on site while the third party they have granted access to the property is on the premises. Third parties may include, but are not limited to, clients, client's family and friends, appraisers who are not GSREIN Participants or Subscribers, inspectors, contractors, roofers, etc.'. If a listing agent obtains authorization from the seller or responsible party, they may allow third parties to remain on the premises without the presence of a licensed agent.
 
 
Section 7.1 COMPLIANCE WITH RULES: The following action may be taken for non-compliance with the rules: 
 
(s) For violation of section 2C- Unauthorized entry or showing of listed property is subject to a $1000 fine for each offense, and may be subject to additional professional standards disciplinary action by the Board of Directors.
 
(t) For Violation of Section 2D- Subscribers/Participants violating this rule are subject to a $1,000 fine for each offense, , and may be subject to additional professional standards disciplinary action by the Board of Directors.
