Take care of the yards on your listings or you could be fined - that's right....

Real Estate Agent with Maximum One Greater Atlanta Realtors

If you are an agent who has any bank-owned properties, you may want to watch out.  An article in yesterday's Atlanta Journal indicated that the county is starting to site listing agents with fines for not taking care of the yards on their bank-owned listings.

This is so unbelievably wrong in so many ways that I can't even begin to comprehend how it ever came to be; but it is happening and you should know about it.

Here is a link to the article with details:

What a bunch of B.S. Now, I might be able to understand if the Property Manager was fined ... after all it's their job to make sure the property is managed. But a listing agent. That's hard to prove in court. What's in writing making an agent responsible for maintaining the property? I would fight every citation and then sue for harassment.
