Love Letter Guidance

By Aryne + Dulcinea, March 25, 2022

While our clients have had wonderful luck with offer acceptance writing letters to sellers, we understand why this practice is unfair and violates fair housing. This excerpt below is from oregonrealtors.org:

“On March 3, 2022, the US District Court for the District of Oregon put an injunction on the enforcement of Oregon’s new law requiring seller’s agents to reject “Love Letters” from buyers.  While the injunction is in place, the Oregon Real Estate Agency will not be enforcing the law and Oregon real estate licensees are not required to follow it.

However, regardless of the new law, Love Letters continue to present risks related to Fair Housing violations.  If a seller were to select or reject a buyer based on the buyer’s protected class information revealed in a love letter, that would be a violation of fair housing laws…The best way to mitigate the risk is to not use love letters in the first place.”
