Do You Know Who Has Your One Day Code?

MLS Issues Add comments

I had a call today from an agent about the SentriLock One Day Code and am interested in knowing under what circumstances listing agents are giving out the One Day Code.  I would like to point out that MAAR has a form for obtaining the home seller’s approval to activate the One Day Code. We strongly urge the use of this form. To access the form known as “Key Box Amendment and Supplement to Exclusive Listing Contract”, go to, click Forms and Contracts, enter the password, and pick the form from the list. 

The question I was asked today was it within our MLS rules to give the code to a licensee who does not belong to the MLS and therefore does not have a SentriLock Card. The MLS rules do not restrict who may be given the code; however, the “Amendment and Supplement” mentioned above gives the seller the option of allowing activation of the code 1) at any time without notice, 2) at any time with advance notice, or 3) only as expressly directed by the home seller. 

What is your practice? Do you give out the code to licensees for showing? Do you give it out solely for use by service providers such as painters and home inspectors? Are you using the “Amendment and Supplement” form when listing the property to obtain the seller’s authorization to give out the code?
