PROFESSIONS, VOCATIONS, AND BUSINESSES
IDAHO REAL ESTATE LICENSE LAW
54-2056. Terminating or changing licensed business relationships. (1) Termination of licensed association. A sales associate who terminates his licensed association with a broker shall provide the broker written notice of the termination no later than three (3) business days after the effective date. A broker who terminates the licensed association of a sales associate shall provide the associate written notice of the termination no later than three (3) business days after the effective date. A licensee’s written notice to the commission does not relieve him of the duty to provide written notice to the other licensee that he is terminating the licensed association.
(2) New association. The broker shall submit a written application, in the form and manner approved by the commission, for each sales associate licensing with the broker.
(3) Termination for cause. Any broker who terminates the association of a sales associate for the violation of any of the provisions of sections 54-2059 through 54-2065, Idaho Code, shall, within ten (10) business days of the termination, notify the commission, in writing, of the termination and the facts giving rise to the termination.
(4) Closing a branch office. Immediately upon closing a branch office, the broker shall provide the commission written notice of the closure advising of the new status of all licensees licensed with the closed branch. The broker shall remove from public view any license certificates for the branch office.
(5) Property of the broker. Upon termination of the business relationship as a sales associate licensed under a broker, the sales associate shall immediately turn over to the broker all listing information and listing contracts, keys, purchase and sale agreements and similar contracts, buyer brokerage information and contracts, and other property belonging to the broker. A sales associate shall not engage in any practice or conduct, directly or indirectly, which encourages, entices or induces clients of the broker to terminate any legal business relationship with the broker unless he first obtains written permission of the broker.
(6) Location of trust accounts and file records. When an actively licensed broker changes to a license status other than that of a designated broker, that individual must notify the commission in writing of the location of all trust accounts and transaction file records which the broker was responsible for during the term of licensure as a designated broker. These records shall be available to the commission for three (3) years following the year in which each transaction was closed.
