The VBR and VMLS Board of Directors have approved to change its MLS Rules and Regulations not to allow affiliates and unlicensed individuals to have Sentrilock access. Appraisers are licensed and this change will not affect them. The reason for this is due to the liability of providing access to unlicensed individuals. This change was approved on April 28, 2020, and was implemented on July 8. The Realtor® must grant access to affiliates moving forward. We understand this isn't ideal, but we do have an easy solution.
The SentriConnect Mobile App allows the listing agent to grant temporary access to their lockboxes that are assigned to a property for those who don't already have access like contractors, inspectors, and photographers. SentriConnect allows the listing agent to grant access to a specific lockbox for a specific duration of time and receive instant notifications of when the SentriConnect user accesses the lockbox.
