IAR Urges Member Action on State Bill

by Peter Thomas Ricci

iar-realtors-illinoisThe Illinois Association of Realtors has sent out a call for action to its members, urging them to oppose a new state bill that, it claims, will increase home seller fees by $75 million per year.

“Please contact your State Representative and ask them to VOTE “NO” on HB 1376,” the call for action states. “This bill would require all homeowners seeking to sell their home to hire a licensed plumber to conduct a video inspection of their sewer line prior to sale.

“This bill imposes a pre-sale inspection cost of up to $500 or more on all homeowners seeking to sell their home. With about 150,000 home sales each year, this bill would impose fees of $75 million per year on homeowners.”

IAR’s message also includes a link that allows members to send an e-mail to their representative.
