MIBOR BLC® clear cooperation policy

The intent of the new Clear Cooperation Policy is to solidify the primary purpose of a listing service, which is to foster cooperation among brokers.

This new Policy only impacts those listings where the seller has required that the listing broker withhold the property from the BLC.

Public marketing includes, but is not limited to:
