Northwest Multiple Listing Service will publish numerous forms on July 11, including several revised forms and six new forms.
Legal Bulletin 223, published on June 20, summarizes the changes, which include both substantive updates and minor clarifications.
The revised forms (see table) are currently available on NWMLS’s website as sample forms for review purposes only. Both clean and redline copies are available for review (not for any transactions). Many of the new forms are for use in providing notices and responses.
The forms will be published for use on TransactionDesk and Xpress Forms on July 11. A subset of the revised and new forms will be available for order in hard copy on July 5.

Northwest MLS recommends recycling old forms to prevent any inadvertent use. Additionally, because House Bill 1070 is not effective until July 23, the revised Rental Agreement (Seller Occupancy After Closing) (Form 65B) should only be used for those owner/renter relationships that are created on or after July 23.
