Licensee Alert: Compliance with COVID-19 Public Health Orders and Executive Orders

From the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies Division of Real Estate

December 17, 2020: The Division of Real Estate (the “Division”) licenses and regulates the real estate brokerage, appraisal, and mortgage loan origination industries.  The Division is responsible for ensuring that consumers are protected in their dealings with our licensed professionals.  

While we are extremely appreciative of the licensed professionals who have continued to comply with the Colorado Public Health Orders (“PHOs”) and the Governor’s Executive Orders regarding COVID-19 requirements and restrictions, we continue to receive complaints about licensed real estate professionals who are failing to comply with the PHOs and the Governor’s Executive Orders. As the Governor has reiterated before, Coloradans working together saves lives and keeps our economy open. 

For the past nine months, the Division has issued warnings to those licensees who have violated the PHOs and Executive Orders.  Moving forward, substantiated violations of the PHOs and Executive Orders will be presented to the applicable Board or Commission for the possible imposition of discipline.  Licensee compliance with the PHOs and the Executive Orders is critical to the health and safety of Colorado consumers.

Currently, much of Colorado is in the “Level Red” status and guidance for real estate professionals can be found under the Real Estate COVID-19 Dial Guidance. For additional information on what status level your county is in, you can visit the Colorado COVID-19 Dial Dashboard.
