Realtor Rules & Bylaws

NVAR administers both proceedings for violations of the Code of Ethics and arbitrations which resolve monetary disputes.

Ethics Proceedings:

Code of Ethics
The foundation of the REALTOR® association rules is the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice detailing the ethical obligations of REALTOR® members.

You can download copies of our Code of Ethics in English, Spanish, Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), KoreanVietnamese or Tagalog.

Why do we have a Code of Ethics?

Lockbox Rules
