What’s a Real Estate Commission Audit?

I’m putting you all on alert that we received notification that we are officially under a Kansas Real Estate Commission Audit. The audit period is from 9/20/17 to 9/19/18.

They will be auditing all files with a contract date between those dates and the current pending files.

Transaction Files

Each transaction file, whether PENDING, CLOSED or CANCELLED, should contain all of the following records (IF APPLICABLE) to the transaction:

  • Agency Agreement with Seller
  • Agency Agreement with Buyer
  • Transaction Broker Agreement
  • Transaction Broker Addendum
  • Offers, Counteroffers
  • Contract
  • Lot Reservation Agreement
  • Commercial Lease
  • Option
  • Receipt for Purchase Agreement and Earnest Money
  • Closing Statements
  • Authorization to disburse Earnest Money on Transaction which did not close
  • Any other record generated in connection with Transaction


MLS Changes

Due to misuse of the Pre MLS status, as of today, the policies for Pre MLS listings have been modified to the following:

1)  If a Pre MLS listing is modified to ACTIVE status before the Future On Market date, the CDOM/DOM will calculate starting from the List Date. Heartland MLS Staff will no longer reset the CDOM/DOM values.  If the listing is to go ACTIVE before the original Future on Market date, please modify this date 24 hours in advance, so the CDOM/DOM will calculate correctly.

2)  If a Pre MLS listing goes ACTIVE in the system because the Future On Market date was not extended, the listing needs to be modified to the Withdrawn status.  Once the listing is ready to be shown, the status can be modified back to ACTIVE. Heartland MLS Staff will no longer delete a listing from the system in this instance, even with a signed request from the broker.

DOM– I am sure that everyone knows that you are supposed to have a form that the sellers sign when placing a property in Show for Back Up status rather than Pending. What some of you don’t know is when something is in Back Up status it continues to calculate DOM unlike Pending status. If you have a deal flip it is in the sellers best interest to use Pending rather than Back Up.

Team Leaders and second agents will now have to attend a class after 3 penalties are assessed from MLS.
