Participation Agreements

These two model MLS participation agreements were developed by the National Association for use by local association MLSs.

The first agreement is for MLS Participants that are REALTORS® of the local association (available for download in PDF and Word formats), while the second agreement is for Participants that hold REALTOR® membership in a different local association (available for download in PDF and Word formats).
