Phase 2 legislative reforms came into effect December 1, 2023. The Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, 2002 (REBBA) will be renamed the Trust in Real Estate Services Act, 2002 (TRESA).
The reforms to the legislation bring important changes for consumers and those trading in real estate in Ontario. Extensive training opportunities for agents and brokers are being offered through all levels of organized real estate including RECO, OREA and OREB as well as Royal LePage Team Realty. TRESA updates will also be provided at all upcoming monthly office meetings so please plan to attend those meetings to keep informed of how this legislation is going to be implemented and how it will affect your real estate business.
