THIS IS NOT A CONTRACT

New York State law requires real estate licensees who are acting as agents of buyers or sellers of property to advise
the potential buyers or sellers with whom they work of the nature of their agency relationship and the rights and
obligations it creates. This disclosure will help you to make informed choices about your relationship with the real estate broker and its sales agents.

If you need legal, tax or other advice, consult with a professional in that field.

Disclosure Regarding Real Estate

Agency Relationships

Seller’s Agent

A seller’s agent is an agent who is engaged by a seller to represent the seller’s interests. The seller’s agent does this
by securing a buyer for the seller’s home at a price and on terms acceptable to the seller. A seller’s agent has, without limitation, the following fiduciary duties to the seller: reasonable care, undivided loyalty, confidentiality, full
disclosure, obedience and duty to account. A seller’s agent does not represent the interests of the buyer. The obligations of a seller’s agent are also subject to any specific provisions set forth in an agreement between the agent and the seller. In dealings with the buyer, a seller’s agent should (a) exercise reasonable skill and care in performance of the agent’s duties; (b) deal honestly, fairly and in good faith; and (c) disclose all facts known to the agent materially affecting the value or desirability of property, except as otherwise provided by law.

Buyer’s Agent

A buyer’s agent is an agent who is engaged by a buyer to represent the buyer’s interest. The buyer’s agent does
this by negotiating the purchase of a home at a price and on terms acceptable to the buyer. A buyer’s agent has,
without limitation, the following fiduciary duties to the buyer: reasonable care, undivided loyalty,
confidentiality, full disclosure, obedience and duty to account. A buyer’s agent does not represent the interest of
the seller. The obligations of a buyer’s agent are also subject to any specific provisions set forth in an agreement
between the agent and the buyer. In dealings with the seller, a buyer’s agent should (a) exercise reasonable
skill and care in performance of the agent’s duties; (b) deal honestly, fairly and in good faith; and (c) disclose all facts known to the agent materially affecting the buyer’s ability and/or willingness to perform a contract to acquire seller’s property that are not consistent with the agent’s fiduciary duties to the buyer.

Broker’s Agents

A broker’s agent is an agent that cooperates or is engaged by a listing agent or a buyer’s agent (but does not work for the same firm as the listing agent or buyer’s agent) to assist the listing agent or buyer’s agent in locating a property to sell or buy, respectively, for the listing agent’s seller or the buyer
agent’s buyer. The broker’s agent does not have a direct relationship with the buyer or seller and the buyer or seller
cannot provide instructions or direction directly to the broker’s agent. The buyer and the seller therefore do not
have vicarious liability for the acts of the broker’s agent. The listing agent or buyer’s agent do provide direction and
instruction to the broker’s agent and therefore the listing agent or buyer’s agent will have liability for the acts of the
broker’s agent.

Dual Agent

A real estate broker may represent both the buyer and the seller if both the buyer and seller give their informed consent in writing. In such a dual agency situation, the agent will not be able to provide the full range of fiduciary duties to the buyer and seller. The obligations of an agent are also subject to any specific provisions set forth in an agreement between the agent, and the buyer and seller. An agent acting as a dual agent must explain carefully to both the buyer and seller that the agent is acting for the other party as well. The agent should also explain the possible effects of dual representation, including that by consenting to the dual agency relationship the buyer and seller are giving up their right to undivided loyalty. A buyer or seller should carefully consider the possible consequences of a dual agency relationship before agreeing to such representation. A seller or buyer may provide advance informed consent to dual agency by indicating the same on this form.

Dual Agent with Designated Sales Agents

If the buyer and seller provide their informed consent in writing, the principals and the real estate broker who
represents both parties as a dual agent may designate a sales agent to represent the buyer and another sales agent
to represent the seller. A sales agent works under the supervision of the real estate broker. With the informed
consent of the buyer and the seller in writing, the designated sales agent for the buyer will function as the buyer’s agent representing the interests of and advocating on behalf of the buyer and the designated sales agent for the seller will function as the seller’s agent representing the interests of and advocating on behalf of the seller in the negotiations between the buyer and seller. A designated sales agent cannot provide the full range of fiduciary duties to the landlord or tenant. A designated sales agent cannot provide full range of fiduciary duties to the buyer or seller. The designated sales agent must explain that like the dual agent under whose supervision they function, they cannot provide undivided loyalty. A buyer or seller should carefully consider the possible consequences of a dual agency relationship with designated sales agents before agreeing to such representation. A seller or buyer provide advance informed consent to dual agency with designated sales agents by indicating the same on this form.

New York State Housing and Anti-Discrimination Disclosure:

https://dos.ny.gov/system/files/documents/2021/03/2156.pdf

Federal, State and local Fair Housing and Anti-discrimination Laws provide comprehensive protections from discrimination in housing. It is unlawful for any property owner, landlord, property manager or other person who sells, rents or leases housing, to discriminate based on certain protected characteristics, which include, but are not limited to race, creed, color, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, military status, sex, age, disability, marital status, lawful source of income or familial status. Real estate professionals must also comply with all Fair Housing and Anti-discrimination Laws. Real estate brokers and real estate salespersons, and their employees and agents violate the Law if they:

• Discriminate based on any protected characteristic when negotiating a sale, rental or lease, including representing that a property is not available when it is available.

• Negotiate discriminatory terms of sale, rental or lease, such as stating a different price because of race, national origin or other protected characteristic.

• Discriminate based on any protected characteristic because it is the preference of a seller or landlord.

• Discriminate by “steering” which occurs when a real estate professional guides prospective buyers or renters towards or away from certain neighborhoods, locations or buildings, based on any protected characteristic.

• Discriminate by “blockbusting” which occurs when a real estate professional represents that a change has occurred or may occur in future in the composition of a block, neighborhood or area, with respect to any protected characteristics, and that the change will lead to undesirable consequences for that area, such as lower property values, increase in crime, or decline in the quality of schools.

• Discriminate by pressuring a client or employee to violate the Law.

• Express any discrimination because of any protected characteristic by any statement, publication, advertisement, application, inquiry or any Fair Housing Law record.
