This evening, Nick approved a recommendation made by the ESOP Committee to prohibit NACHI members from paying money to real estate agents, brokers, or offices for individual referrals or to be included on lists provided to their clients.
The new language can be found in Item 6 of the COE.
ASHI has similar language that is scheduled to take effect on 10/14. Our change has already been incorporated into the new code.
Language is also being considered for the SOP that would mandate compliance with the COE, much as the COE already has language requiring compliance with the SOP.
