BCREA Standard Forms Pre-Launch Package

BCREA recently shared its Standard Forms Pre-Launch Package with managing brokers and will distribute it to the wider REALTOR® community later this month. The package includes revision summaries, guides, and revised and new forms based on changes prompted by the new Home Buyer Rescission Period (HBRP) regulations coming in January 2023, in addition to other non-regulatory changes as outlined below:

Home Buyers Rescission Period regulatory changes to:

  • Buyer’s Agency Exclusive Contract
  • Co-Listing Form Separate Representation
  • Contract of Purchase and Sale Residential
  • Exclusive Listing Contract
  • Fee Agreement Buyer Pays (Buyer and Seller Not Represented)
  • Fee Agreement Seller Pays (Buyer and Seller Not Represented)
  • Fee Agreement Seller Pays (Buyer Represented Seller Not Represented)
  • Multiple Listing Contract
  • NEW FORM – Notice of Rescission Residential Real Property

Non-regulatory changes to multiple forms, including:

  • A new section for various Contracts of Purchase and Sale to help strengthen the enforceability of contracts
  • Updates to radon questions within multiple Property Disclosure Forms; and
  • Housekeeping and form useability amendments.
