July 2024 Updates to NC REALTOR® Standard Forms

With the evolving real estate landscape, staying updated on form changes is crucial for every REALTOR®. July 2024 brings significant updates and new forms to better address the needs of buyers, sellers, and agents. Many of these changes are also required by the NAR Commission Lawsuit Settlement.


The forms committee has been hard at work this year, introducing a series of exciting and impactful changes. Among the most noteworthy updates are the new Owner's Disclosure Statement for Vacant Land, an invaluable Estate Property Flowchart providing clear guidance on contract signatories, and a groundbreaking Wear-and-Tear Guide that distinctly outlines examples of wear and tear versus property damage for landlords and tenants.


REALTOR® Members should begin using these forms no later than 7/1/2024. Copies of the new forms can be obtained from your forms vendor or by logging into your NC REALTOR® online account.
