Its not illegal to mail mail unless you put anthrax in it.
@Michael Quarles Hahaha I know. It just seems like an over reaction from someone to take it that far and actually contact the DOS to report soliciting. On the other hand, I would not want to be the agent receiving an $1,800 fine for direct mail.
It is illegal to mail a solicitation of a real estate listing to homeowners that opt-in to the cease and desist list in certain parts of Queens and the Bronx. The lists are updated monthly and can be found on the NY DOS website. Search cease and desist list. I'm pretty sure Brooklyn is not included and the Brooklyn MLS doesn't have that many listings in the other boroughs.
@Jason Lee found it. Thank you. Cease and desist list is the proper name for it.
What are your thoughts on an introduction mailer with a spotlight on a local business in the neighborhood per say. No listings or asking to sell or buy a property?
