Prince George's County and Maryland real estate contract, listing, and broker forms

PGCAR recently revised and/or discontinued the listed forms. Please immediately begin using the new forms and disregard copies or electronic files containing the old/outdated blank forms. The new forms are currently available in PDF format at PGCAR.com and will be available soon under the PGCAR directories at ZipForms and DotLoop.

Of significant importance is the discontinuance of Form #1303, the Jurisdictional Addendum to the MAR Residential Contract of Sale. This form closely mirrored PGCAR Form #1302, the Disclosure and Notice Addendum (DNA). In fact, the DNA already included all of the mandatory disclosures that were contained in Form #1303, plus several more that are recommended to protect agents and sellers from liability exposures. Having both forms created confusion. As such, the PGCAR Forms Committee acted to maintain the DNA Form over the Jurisdictional Addendum.
  1. Removed Form #503 - Notice To Tenant Lead Based Paint and Lead Based Paint Hazards:

    This form was discontinued as the suggested disclosures are now incorporated into the PGCAR Lease.

  2. Revised Form #1100 - Property Management and Exclusive Rental Agreement
    Latest revision 3/22/16.

    • Item 27 - Revised to address new legislation relative to fines for failure to obtain a rental license.
    • Item 35 - New paragraph added, "Notice To Owner - Lead Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act."
    • Item 36 - New paragraph added, Liens / Mortgages / Judgments / Foreclosure / Bankruptcy.
    • Item 38 - New paragraph added to address legislation, "Age Restricted / Senior Rental Community / Facility."

  3. Revised Form #1105 - Single Family Dwelling Lease
    Latest revision 3/22/16.

    • Item 3 - Revised to address legislation relative to security deposit interest owed on short term rentals.
    • Item 9 - Revised to address and clarify liability for pet / service animal damages.
    • Item 20 c - New paragraph added addressing "Notice to Tenants Renting in Condominiums."
    • Item 40 - New paragraph added, "Notice To Owner - Lead Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act."
    • Item 45 - New paragraph added, "Age Restricted / Senior Rental Community / Facility."

  4. Revised Form #1301 - Addendum of Clauses
    Latest revision 3/16.

    • Item 5 - Paragraph removed. Please refer to MAR Home Inspection Addendum.
    • Item 6 - Paragraph removed. Please refer to the MAR "As Is" addendum.
    • Item 7 - Revised with grammatical clarification.
    • Item 8 - Revised with grammatical clarification.

  5. Revised Form #1302 - Prince George's County Disclosure and Notice Addendum (DNA)
    Latest revision date is 3/16.

    • Item 1 - Added Buyer / Seller initial lines to verify understanding of Item #1.
    • Item 11 - Revised to address State and County ordinances that require disclosure and clarifies that disclosure, "by Seller," is made "prior to" the time the Contract is signed.
    • Item 21 - New paragraph added, "Rental License Required."

  6. Removed Form #1303 - Jurisdictional Addendum To The MAR Residential Contract of Sale

    As indicated in the opening paragraph, this form is discontinued in favor of using PGCAR Form #1302 (DNA) as the "standard" local addendum to the MAR Residential Contract of Sale.

  7. Removed Form #1407 - Home Inspection Notice

    This form is discontinued. It is unnecessary upon removal of Paragraph #5 in the Standard Addendum of Clauses (Form # 1301).

After a six-year absence the celebration is back, as Prince George's County Association of REALTORS® (PGCAR) recognized the incredible performance of its agents for their sales production in 2015. On March 30, the gala awarded almost 100 county REALTORS®.

The sales agents had to make a minimum of $2.5 million in sales to qualify. The top recipients exceeded that qualification at the platinum levels, where the minimum sales are $10.5 million to receive the Individual General Brokerage Award. John Lesniewski of RE/MAX United Real Estate, came in first place with his sales reaching an outstanding $35 million.


The Bill Franklin Team of Long and Foster Real Estate, won first place for their platinum level sales. With over $43 million in production, they received first place in the Team Production General Brokerage Awards.


Rookie of The Year 2015 is Demetrius Crawford of TriStar Realty with $4.2 million in sales during his 12 months as a real estate agent.

These agents were able to produce award worthy sales thanks to positive changes in the real estate market. "2015 was a particularly good year for agent production," said PGCAR President Chuck Ottley, an award recipient himself. "Property values are up, finance options are attractive, homes are selling in less time and for more money. This scenario translates into good numbers for real estate agents and, quite frankly good news for home buyers and sellers."
