CVR MLS has approved reciprocity with other Associations and MLSs who use a SentriLock Lockbox system. Such reciprocity allows non-CVR MLS agents access to listed properties of CVR MLS Participants and Subscribers through the SentriSmart app.
A. Active, licensed, real estate agents that are not members of CVR MLS or an Association or MLS providing reciprocity may be allowed access to the Lockbox through the SentriConnect app for showing of the property in accordance with Section 12.2.3 of these Rules.
B. Outside of licensed real estate agents gaining access, Authorized User may provide Lockbox access through the SentriConnect app with Seller’s written permission to licensed pest control inspectors or unlicensed assistants, as hereinafter identified. Only unlicensed assistants that are employed or contracted with the Authorized User to whom the lockbox has been registered may be provided access to the Lockbox. The unlicensed assistant may only be provided access to perform such duties as allowed under Virginia law.
C. Notwithstanding the foregoing section, no access may be granted to non-real estate licensees without the written authorization from the Seller. CVR MLS may, at its discretion, request a copy of such authorization from the Authorized User. Failure to obtain proper authorization will be considered a lockbox violation and subject to the fines set forth in Section 12.2.8.ARTICLE 12: SENTRILOCK® LOCKBOX SERVICES AUTHORIZED USER RULES
