Legal Q&A | Unfair Real Estate Service Agreements and an Update on NC DOJ v. MV Realty

QUESTION: I recently saw a news article that some listing agreements have been banned by the General Assembly. The article got me wondering: Are our standard form agency agreements in compliance? Do I need to make any adjustments to how I fill out the Exclusive Right to Sell Listing Agreement (Form 101) with seller clients? What should I do if I encounter a potential seller who has signed an unfair real estate service agreement?
