Recently, a number of laws have been passed in New York State pertaining to Fair Housing and these laws have significant impact for real estate licensees.  One of these laws requires real estate brokers who service residential homebuyers to create and publish “Standardized Operating Procedures” (the “SOP Law”) for their brokerage offices so that prospective purchasers understand what will be required from them when working with a real estate broker.
