At the state level, Megan’s Law is a general name for laws requiring law enforcement authorities to make information available to the public regarding registered sex offenders.

As noted, Article 15, Section 15-20 of the Act states, “No cause of action shall arise against a Licensee for the failure to disclose … fact situations on property that is not the subject of the transaction …”

Leasing Agents have no legal duty to disclose that a known sex offender resides in a property near a property being leased by the Managing Broker, Broker, or Leasing Agent.
