Broker Responsibilities: Office Requirements in the License Law

Every brokerage must establish and maintain a definite place of business in Ohio. (Ohio Revised Code Section 4735.16(A)) The Division interprets this to be a location at which mail, telephone calls, and the public can be received. The Division will not accept a post office box as a broker’s sole address. An office can be shared with other businesses, or can be in one’s home.
