Warning to Brokers and Consumers to Beware of Unlicensed Activity in NC

NCREC would like the public to be aware of types of unlicensed activity taking place in North Carolina that could result in legal action and possibly criminal charges.  In NC, it is illegal to manage properties that belong to others for compensation without a license.  Paying ‘referral’ or ‘finders’ fees to people who do not have a real estate license is also illegal in NC.  Another common category of unlicensed activity includes brokerage services provided by inactive or expired brokers.  For more details on types of unlicensed activity to watch out for and possible legal actions, read this month’s eBulletin article: Brokers & Consumers Should Beware of Unlicensed Activity in North Carolina.
