Clermont, FL asked in Real Estate Law and Gov & Administrative Law for New York

Q: Are there in laws that prohibit a Florida real estate developer from advertising our community in New York?

We sell vacation homes and have many clients from New York. We are thinking about participating in a property show but want to make sure its ok to advertise FL properties in New York. Our company is in Florida and so is the community that we would like to advertise. THANK YOU

A: A general concern for interstate property advertisements is whether you are in compliance with any federal/local fair housing and discrimination laws - which can vary by state and city. If you are working with a local broker your agreement should specify that they are taking on these compliance requirements risks. My firm represents developers in New York and Florida - feel free to contact me.
