Section 1.14: Listings Of Suspended Participants

Listings Of Suspended Participants

When a Participant of the Service is suspended from the MLS for failing to abide by a membership duty (i.e., violation of the Code of Ethics, Association Bylaws, MLS Bylaws, MLS Rules and Regulations, or other membership obligation except failure to pay appropriate dues, fees, or charges), all listings currently entered into the MLS by the suspended Participant shall, at the Participant’s option, be retained in the Service until sold, withdrawn, or expired, and shall not be renewed or extended by the MLS beyond the termination date of the listing agreement in effect when the suspension became effective.  If a Participant has been suspended from the Association (except where participation without Board membership is permitted by law) or MLS (or both) for failure to pay appropriate dues, fees, or charges, the MLS is not obligated to provide MLS services, including continued inclusion of the suspended Participant’s listings in the MLS compilation of current listing information.  Prior to any removal of suspended Participant’s listings from the MLS, the suspended Participant should be advised in writing of the intended removal so that the suspended Participant may advise his or her clients.
