You have a very interesting profile, no name, no company, no license number, no phone number and yet you are DEMANDING answers on a legal issue claiming that you are a licensed Realtor....

With all due respect Brooklyn Belle if you know where you can go to for the answer to your question, what then is the purpose of posting the comment on this forum? Giving legal advise on any level is not allowed unless one is licensed to practice law. If a realtor or any other party give legal advise or information and it is acted upon, that can place a person in a rather precarious situation.

If you are a realtor then your easy route to getting this information is to call the legal hotline set up for our use as realtors when we have these sorts of questions. Times are tough and the need to make the extra income are necesarry, you do want to proceed properly so that you do not lose the very license you are trying to protect. Good luck.

FREC Licensing rules only allow a licensed salesperson or broker-salesperson to work for 1 Reg Real Estate Brokerage. The Broker can be multiple licensed and be on the board of multiple brokerage entities. A licensee may be allowed to work a part-time leasing consultant position as an employee of the principal/owner of an entity provided they are an employee and salaried (non-commissioned) and they only provide leasing services for that prinicpal/owner and no other outside. However, as the Broker where such a licensee has placed his license, for business reasons i would not permit it and would de-hire that agent right away. If you want a legal opinion, ask an attorney.

You are asking real estate licensees for legal information. Unless you are an attorney is it illegal to practice law without a license.. If you want legal advice then please contact an attorney. If that is not the answer you were looking for then the question might be better posed in a legal forum, not a real estate forum.

Providing legal information and practicing law are quite different. Only one is illegal without a license.
