Lockboxes are used by realtors to obtain
keys for showing your property when you are away. Only
your authorized real
estate broker should have the combination to your lockbox. Before other realtors are
allowed to view or show your home to prospective buyers they must call the listing
broker's office and prove that they are
licensed North Carolina real estate brokers or salespersons. Each request must
be verified by full name, license number, office telephone number, time to show,
and time of the request. This request is logged and initialed by the person verifying
Please read the warning below.
The security of the home is the primary reason for using a lock box. In order to
minimize the risk of misuse of the lockbox, I recommend against the use of placing
the lockboxe on door handles that can be unscrewed from the outside or on other
parts of the home from which the lockbox can be easily removed. Since others will
have access to your property you should remove all valuables or put them in a secure
location. Remebmer, Do not give your combination to anyone.
The combination lockbox has served the real estate industry for many years with
only a few issolated incidences of misuse. Following the proper use and precautions
will provide beneficial use while minimizing the posibility of misuse.
