The Realty Association's

Training Site

RF203 Exemption Notification Form changed (for the better!):

TNRealtors recently changed this form so that it now includes the additional information about injection wells, whether the house was moved, perc and soil tests results, sinkholes, and PUDs. This is a good and logical change, and it means we no longer have to include a second form (RF205) as the new RF203 combines the info from both forms. Yea!
