Forms Update Resources
July 1, 2016 Update
The WB-1 Residential Listing Contract and the WB-42 Amendment to Listing Contract have been updated by the Real Estate Examining Board of the Department of Safety and Professional Services. The updated WB-1 and updated WB-42 have mandatory use dates of July 1, 2016. However, these forms are unusual because they have no optional use date.
In this unique situation, the WB-1 uses revised client disclosure language that is quoted from the updated Chapter 452 of the statutes, which does not go into effect until July 1, 2016. Using the revised disclosure language before that language becomes law creates a risk that a listing could be challenged and a firm could lose out on a commission if a contract with the revised language is used before that language is law.
Sample copies of July 1 forms:
The language in the agency disclosure forms was also
modified by the new legislation and thus should only be used starting July 1.
The updated disclosure forms include:
WB-1, WB-42 and agency disclosure forms will be available to
purchase the week of June 20 and available on zipForm July 1
The Disclosure to Clients form will be used to update
listings and other agency agreements that will have incorrect disclosure
language starting July 1 until they are updated by the REEB. Beginning July 1,
all such forms appearing in zipForm will have the old language lined out and
will automatically appear together with the new Disclosure to Clients. For the

How are the new forms developed?
The WB forms are prepared and approved for use by the REEB. Prior to approval, drafts are reviewed by the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association Forms Committee, chaired by REALTOR® Tom Sykora, and comments are forwarded on to the DSPS Real Estate Contractual Forms Advisory Committee. Once the DSPS state forms are finalized, WRA-drafted forms are examined to see if changes are warranted.
