The Three Types of DRE Public Reports

Preliminary Public Report (Pink Report)

Allows the subdivider to advertise the project, take reservations with a deposit. No binding contracts may be signed under this report and all neutral escrow deposits are fully refundable.

Conditional Public report (Yellow Report)

Allows the subdivider to enter into binding contracts and open escrows. This report is filed when the subdivider is waiting for an event to take place before the Final Public Report may be issued.

Final Public Report (White Report)

Allows the subdivider to sell or lease the property and to close escrow. The DRE Public Report process generally takes four to five months for common interest developments and two to three months for standard
