TREB: Deleting Photos and Information from MLS® Listings

The following is a notice to the members of The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) that was sent out this morning:

Please be advised that TREB will not accept requests to make certain special edits on listings which have become inactive (expired, sold, or terminated). Specifically, requests to remove photos, room dimensions, room descriptions, and information in the various remarks fields (Remarks for Clients, Remarks for Brokers, and Extras) will be denied.

In addition, circumstances in which a Member has removed the information noted above from an active listing and then shortly thereafter the listing has expired, been terminated, or been marked as sold, will be treated as a violation of MLS® Rule R-108, which reads as follows:

R-108 – All Members shall abide by the RECO Rules, the CREA Rules, the MLS® Rules and Policies, and by all applicable laws and regulatory requirements. No Member shall act in a manner so as to attempt to deliberately avoid or circumvent TREB’s MLS® System, the RECO Rules, the CREA Rules or these MLS® Rules and Policies, or any applicable laws or regulatory requirements.
