Section 1.15: Listings Of Expelled Participants

Listings Of Expelled Participants

When a Participant of the Service is expelled 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 obligations except failure to pay appropriate dues, fees, or charges), all listings currently entered into the MLS shall, at the expelled Participant’s option, be retained in the Service until sold, withdrawn, or expired, and shall not be renewed or extended by the MLS beyond the termination date of the listing agreement in effect when the expulsion became effective.  If a Participant has been expelled from the Association (except where MLS 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 expelled Participant’s listings in the MLS compilation of current listing information.  Prior to any removal of an expelled Participant’s listings from the MLS, the expelled Participant should be advised in writing of the intended removal so that the expelled Participant may advise his or her clients.
