(Printed copies of the listing as it appears in each town must be included with the notification.) (2.)

(3.) The Listing Broker must notify the CMLS office, in writing, as soon as the property is sold, the listing expires or is cancelled.

Note: photos of properties listed as Proposed New Construction or Under Construction are required to have photos once construction has been completed. Photos must be input into the system or received at CMLS office within five calendar days of the date the listing was entered into the system. There are four ways to meet this requirement: (1.) At the time a listing is entered into the CMLS system, the Listing Agent may indicate that a photo of a property already existing in the CMLS system should be copied to the new listing. In this case the Listing Agent must also clearly and accurately indicate the listing number for the property from that contains the photo to be copied. (2.) Using RE/Xplorer 2, the Listing agent may enter a digital photo directly from their computer, (3.) A digital photo file(s), in.jpg file format may be e- mailed, as an attachment(s), to or (4.) Photos may be hand delivered or mailed directly to the CMLS. There is no fee charged for including photographs or copying photos from one listing to another. Section 4.21 Listing Subject To Rules and Regulations of CMLS: Except for Office Exclusive listings, all listings procured through a Participant's Subscribers from within the CMLS service area shall be loaded into the System or submitted to CMLS and are immediately subject to CMLS Rules and Regulations. Section 4.22 Deadlines: The deadlines for Publication of listings, photographs and changes are set forth on Schedule C. Section 4.23 Data Errors: After written notice from the Listing Broker of any errors or omissions in data loaded by CMLS, CMLS's sole responsibility shall be to correct any such errors or omissions in the CMLS System. A Participant shall correct all errors or omissions in data loaded by such Participant or its Subscribers. CMLS will not be responsible for errors or omissions with respect to listing information, regardless of whether the Listing Broker or CMLS loaded such data. Section 4.26 Accepted Offers: The Listing Agent shall report all accepted offers as Contingent, Pending, Sold or Rented within two (2) Calendar Days of the effective date of such status. No status change will be accepted by CMLS without all required data. Failure to comply may subject Participants and Subscribers to the penalties detailed in Section 9.6. a) Continue to Show (CTS). Any accepted offer with a contingency other than financing and routine inspections shall be reported as continue to show (CTS) until such offer becomes pending, sold or canceled. Contingent sales will remain as active listings in the CMLS System for thirty (30) days at which time they are automatically converted to a Pending status, or until a status change is reported, or the listing expires. b) Pending Any accepted offer with no contingencies other than financing and routine inspections shall be reported as Pending. Listings with Pending status will not remain as active listings, but will remain in the CMLS System as Pending until reported Sold or canceled. Pending sales will not Expire unless such Pending sale is reported Canceled. c) Sold Any property that has closed shall be reported as Sold.
6 d) Rented Any property that s been rented shall be reported as Rented. Section 4.28 Closings on Listed Properties: The Listing Agent shall report all closings on listed properties within two (2) calendar days after they occur. Failure to comply may subject Participants and Subscribers to the penalties detailed in Section Section 4.30 Withdrawal of Listing Prior to Expiration: Listings may be withdrawn from CMLS by the Listing Agent before the expiration date of the listing agreement provided the Listing Broker obtains a written statement signed by the Owner stating his/her desire to withdraw such listing from CMLS. Such statement shall be provided to CMLS within two (2) working days of request. Failure to comply may subject Participants and Subscribers to the penalties detailed in Section SECTION VII - DIVISION OF COMMISSIONS Section 7.2 Payment of Compensation: Unless otherwise agreed between the Listing Broker and the Cooperating Broker, the Listing Broker shall immediately cause the Cooperating Broker to be sent his/her share of the commission, fee or other compensation after the collection of the same commission by the Listing Broker. Section 7.3 Cooperative Compensation Specified on Each Listing: Each listing placed on the CMLS System must offer compensation to CMLS Participants. The listing broker shall specify, on each listing filed with CMLS, the compensation offered to other CMLS Participants for their services in the sale of such listing. The essential and appropriate requirement is that the information to be published shall clearly inform the Participants as to the compensation they will receive in cooperative transactions unless advised otherwise by the listing broker in writing in advance. The compensation specified on listings published by CMLS shall be shown in one of the following forms: a) by showing a percentage of the gross selling price; or b) by showing a definite dollar amount. Note : When placing a property in the CMLS System, the Participant of the Service is making blanket unilateral offers of cooperation and compensation to the other Participants, and shall therefore specify on each listing placed in the CMLS System the compensation being offered to the other Participants. Specifying the compensation on each listing is necessary because the cooperating broker has the right to know what his/her compensation shall be prior to his/her endeavor to sell. The listing broker retains the right to determine the amount of compensation offered to Subagent and to Buyers Agents, which may be the same or different. This shall not preclude the listing broker from offering any CMLS Participant compensation other than the compensation indicated on any listing published by CMLS provided the listing broker informs the other broker in writing in advance and provided that the modification of the specified compensation is not the result of any agreement among all or any other Participants in CMLS. Any superseding offer of compensation must be expressed as either a percentage of the gross sales price or as a flat dollar amount. Section 11.5 Enforcement of Mandatory Listings: SECTION XI: SANCTIONS FOR VIOLATIONS a) If a mandatory listing as defined in Section 4.1 or the seller(s) waiver for such listing as provided in Section 4.6, are not submitted to CMLS as required by these Rules and Regulations, the following fines shall be automatically imposed by CMLS on the responsible Participant. 1) per day up to a maximum of $25.00 for the first such listing in any thirty (30) day period; 2) per day up to a maximum of $ for the second such listing in any thirty (30) day period; 3) per day up to a maximum of $ for the third such listing in any thirty (30) day period; and 4) per day up to a maximum of $ for the fourth such listing in any such thirty (30) day period. b) Upon the occurrence of any one of the following events, CMLS shall automatically suspend all services to the responsible Participant (including all Subscribers affiliated with such Participant) for a period of thirty (30) days: 1) failure to submit a fifth mandatory listing or waiver within any thirty (30) day period; 2) failure to pay any fine imposed pursuant to this Section within fifteen (15) days of writ ten notice that such fine is due; or 3) failure to submit any mandatory listing or waiver that has been the subject of a fine imposed pursuant to this Section within fifteen (15) days of written notice of such fine.
7 c) A Participant who believes that a fine has been improperly imposed may appeal such fine to the CMLS Board of Directors, in writing, within five (5) days of written notice that the fine has been imposed. The sole recognized ground for any such appeal shall be that the listing or waiver on which the fine is based was properly submitted in accordance with the requirements of these Rules and Regulations. Section 11.6 Timely Reporting of Extensions, Renewals, Accepted Offers, Fulfilled Contingencies, Closings, Cancellations, and Withdrawals of Listings as Defined in Sections 4.25 through 4.30: The following penalties shall be imposed on Participants and Subscribers who fail to report the above listed status changes to their listings input into the CMLS system within two (2) calendar days: 1.

Section 11.7 Penalty for Entering an Incomplete or Inaccurate listing: In the event a listing input into the CMLS System (a.) Contains substantially inaccurate data or, (b.) Contains incomplete or inaccurate data in any Mandatory field, as defined in Section 1.7 of these Rules and Regulations or, (c.)
