2015 Realtors at the Capitol

Realtors at the Capitol 2015

Assembly was at the Bushnell in Hartford, a short walk from the state capitol and the Legislative Office building.  App 500 real estate professionals from the state were there to hear opening remarks and then head over to meet with law makers to discuss concerns an hear their responses.

This past session several proposed laws were defeated that would have had impact on agents and their clients.


A defeat of a law to make it illegal to have an exclusive listing agreement.

Mandatory sprinklers in new residential construction starting 2017.

Permitting landlords to have a waiver of a first offense for housing violations.

Mandatory requirement for labs to report radon all radon test results and radon remediation to a government agency.

After meeting with the representatives, there was an opportunity to have a lunch in the Office building cafeteria before calling it a day.

Days of support like this are important for all to stay abreast of the work being done in Hartford on our behalf.

Very nice to see so many people being involved.  Rule making and government is not always perfect, but it works best when there is mass participation.

Good morning Ed. Great to see so much participation, but in our state many of our legislators have no clue, especially the leadership.

Ed I tried to get there but had a couple of fires I had to deal with in the office.  Glad you were able to make it and share a little bit of the information.
