IAR 2016 Forms Changes
IAR is committed to helping you keep your professional edge over non-REALTORS®. Each year, our attorneys and forms committee volunteers spend months reviewing federal rules and regulations, and new state laws and administrative rules to make sure your transactional forms are current. As a result of this latest review and member feedback, we will add two new forms to your residential library in 2016: 1) Addendum to Purchase Agreement Escalation Clause and 2) Signature Page Addendum. We will also make changes to the residential Purchase Agreement(s), Listing Contract(s), and the Mutual Release From Listing Contract. 2016 Residential Forms Changes
