SentriLock Box Audit
 
This is a reminder that we are in the process of completing our SentriLock Box audit; it is ongoing until July 30th .  Please read these tips which will help the audit run smoothly. 
  • Now is the time to return all defective lockboxes accompanied by a ticket number given by SentriLock Customer Service.  We are not able to audit defective boxes.  
  • Open key compartments on all lockboxes that are currently not on Active listings.
  • You may be asked to do the same for boxes on listings that haven’t been opened in 45 days, but only if you are asked to do this.  We will contact you if this is necessary.
Any questions concerning the Lock Box audit should be directed to Kristy by calling 302-855-2300 or emailing kristy@scaor.com
 
SentriLock Dues
 
We wanted to remind you that SentriLock Dues have posted in your portal.  Here are a few things to remember.
 
  • Current SentriLock members will be charged 1/2 of the normal price for their dues renewal
  • You may delay payment until July 30th, 2020 without penalty of late fee (the normal deadline is June 30th)
  • There will only be one late fee charge of $25 if you have not paid by July 30, 2020 (instead of several late fee charges)
  • If you have not paid your SentriLock Dues by July 30th, you will lose your SentriLock membership and will have to pay a $50 reconnect fee (in addition to the single late fee of $25)
  • We will send out reminders weekly and will contact you via email before disconnecting you. 
 
Continuing Education Credits
 
We continue to get lots of questions about when continuing education credits (CE's) should be completed if you needed an extension for CE's when you renewed your license.  We wanted to remind you that you were given 60 days from the time the State of Emergency is lifted to complete your CE's.  

On June 6th, Governor Carney extended the State of Emergency for 30 days, which means that it is currently extended until July 6th. Under Delaware law, State of Emergency declarations must be renewed every 30 days.  Because of this no one knows for sure when the State of Emergency will be lifted.  What this means for you is that you currently have until September 4th to complete CE's and this could be extended to a later date dependent upon when Governor Carney lifts the State of Emergency.  

We are working hard to find the best way to safely bring CE classes back to SCAOR. We will let you know as soon as we are ready to offer them again.  
 
If you know any of our new members, welcome them to SCAOR!

Local Events
As we begin the road to economic recovery, we hope that all businesses affected by the pandemic can recover in a safe and fruitful way.  Many of us are excited for things to open back up and many are apprehensive.  While we look forward to the day when we can add fun events back into this newsletter, we also remind you to be respectful of individual differences in handling a variety of responses to life in this ongoing pandemic.  What is good for one person or business may not be for a neighbor.  The one thing we can all do is be kind!
