Updating Of Cease And Desist Lists
Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer has recently announced that the Department of State is currently in the process of updating for July 2008 the Cease and Desist Lists.
The New York State Cease and Desist Lists prohibit licensed real estate brokers and salespersons from soliciting listings of residential property from homeowners whose names and addresses appear on these lists and is "an effective program that has improved the quality of life for many residents, and ends the unscrupulous solicitation by the few brokers seeking to destroy our neighborhoods."
Property owners who were on the January 2008 list do not need to submit a new owner's statement for the July 2008 list. Those, however, who do wish to be added to the listing, should complete an owner's statement and return it no later than June 20, 2008. While June 20, 2008 is the filing deadline for the July 2008 Cease and Desist List update, filing will be accepted continuously for the next update, which will be published in January 2009.
Anyone interested in adding her or his name and address to the program may contact either of Pheffer's offices at 90-16 Rockaway Beach Boulevard., Rockaway Beach, telephone 718-945- 9550; or 108-14 Crossbay Boulevard., Ozone Park, telephone 718-641-8755.
