Ohio law contains minimum service provisions, but it allows home sellers to choose the services they wish their broker to perform by including a provision allowing for waiver of the performance of certain services.

In 2005, the Ohio Association of Realtors formed a task force to investigate the needs of their consumers. The task force determined that, while Ohio law should require that brokers provide certain minimum services, consumers should also have the option to waive those services.
