Attention All MLS Participants

The Board of Directors recently passed a change to the penalty for non-payment of MLS fees by the due date.

Starting April 1, a late fee of $100 will be added to the invoice of any MLS firm that has not paid quarterly MLS dues by the 10th of the month in which the fees are due.

If the fees are not paid by the last day of the month in which the fees are due, an additional reinstatement fee  of $100 will be added to the invoice.

Please send in payment for your firm’s MLS fees by the due date to avoid both the late fee and the reinstatement fee.

If you have questions or comments, please call the association at 864 224 7941.  As always, we appreciate your membership and will strive to continue to provide the highest level of service.
