Current Realty Services Letters (RSLs)

The following Realty Services Letters (RSLs) are currently in effect. Some RSLs have been superseded in part by Lease Acquisition Circulars (LACs). In any instance of overlap or discrepancy between them, LACs are the final authoritative source of leasing policy and guidance. Over time the Office of Real Estate Acquisition will be issuing additional LACs to update and replace these current RSLs, which will then be cancelled.
