Frum Real Estate Agent Receives Summons For Leaving Up ‘For Sale’ Sign For Too Long in Jackson

A Frum real estate agent tells TLS she received a summons for leaving up a sign too long in Jackson.

According to the complaint, the sign was allegedly up for longer than two weeks after the closing.

“They are insane. This sign was one of the most remote and quietest blocks in Jackson, that means they spent time and money tracking my sign,” the agent told TLS. “The seller did not mind it was there either. “It’s pathetic.”

The agent says she is required to attend a virtual hearing this week over the summons.

  1. It’s true that they may have been trying to get you (or us) for something, but that’s just all the more reason for following the laws and not giving anyone a valid complaint against us.

  2. Not sure why this is even news worthy. It’s a personal issue dated back to August. It’s not illegitimate. Welcome to law and order. You break it, you pay it.

    Tbh, I think it should be a relatively easy dismissal request from the judge. It’s an advertisement that the property owner agreed to.

  3. All real estate agents knew good and well about it they got tickets and all told each other about it. It’s not anything anti it’s known and had been known for a while they aren’t the first to get a ticket so it ts not news. The ordinance is in place for a while.

  4. I don’t think the ordinance is good or bad, but shouldn’t agents know what it is an respect it? Wouldn’t it be good to approach the people making the ordinance and request that it be changed if it is not convenient? It seems like this kind of regulation is designed to improve quality of life for homeowners, is that a bad thing?

  5. pay the small fine like a man and move on!!! whats the big deal here?? if u did something wrong-man up to it, pay it and it wont happen again-im sure youve learned your lesson. its part of the price of doing business… whats wrong with people?? why does everything have to be a big deal when its just some money and nothing else??? lets move on!! (and perhaps you can even count it as your business expense for advertising).

  6. I hope not to get a summons for being a non licensed real estate sales person. Its just unreasonable to have a law that one must be licensed when I’m trying to make a living/parnasah.
