There are hundreds of bills, but I am referring to Senate Bill #173 and Senate Bill #2.
Number 173 Is Simple
It states that the BRE should go back to being the DRE. No reason is given, and I have not heard very much about this. The change to BRE did not affect licensees to any great extent, so a change back should not be a big deal.
Who Profits? Printers; new business cards, flyers, and stationary (if anyone still uses it).
Number 2 Is Not So Simple
This is a bill that has been discussed for many years. It adds a fee to the recording of many real estate documents that is to be used to help the homeless population and to allow local governments to update zoning and other procedures. This would allow more building of affordable housing.
The Fee Is $75.00 Per Document To A Maximum Of $225.00
It applies to every real estate instrument recorded except those exempted in the bill. Think sales transactions. They will not be subject to the fees.
The Name Of The Bill Is The Building Homes And Jobs Act
It is called an urgency statute whatever that means. I am not a politician, will never be a politician, and raised my children to never be politicians so I do not know what a lot of these rules encompass.
