This is great information to be shared with fellow realtors as we get instructions on what to do for our clients.
As the situation around COVID-19 continues to disrupt people’s lives, we’re actively working to update our online information for professionals and consumers. We encourage you to keep checking our COVID-19 and Real Estate page for new resources and guidance, including external links to resources you may find useful.
RECBC has developed checklists to help you manage challenges related to COVID-19 when working with clients. All real estate professionals should be discussing COVID-19 with their clients to work cooperatively to find solutions that minimize risk for all parties. You can find the checklists, along with advice and considerations for professionals, on our website:
If you are working with clients or members of the public who have questions about how their real estate transaction or management services will be impacted by COVID-19, RECBC’s consumer information may be a helpful resource: Information for Real Estate Consumers on COVID-19.
BC has declared a provincial health emergency, and so we encourage you to not visit our office in person at this time. We are continuing to provide all licensing, education, audit, and compliance services.
