As the realtor, you must make your client aware that you are part of the program and that you will be paid a referral fee as part of the program. You are held by FSCO and the government of Ontario to follow the laws and rules as laid out by Reg. 407/07: EXEMPTIONS FROM THE REQUIREMENTS TO BE LICENSED (view regulation). The Real Estate professional must also comply with all standard tax laws as well as the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, 2002, S.O. 2002, c. 30, Sched. C (view act).
