Sunnyview is right.  This is not appropriate at all.  I would wonder if that agent is even still in business?  Give them a call or send them a text that they have two days to come pickup their stuff or you will contact the board.

How long has the listing has been expired, if it just expired maybe the sellers pulled it off the market for a few weeks and have plans to relist so the sign stays because its been agreed upon.  

Contact the agent on the sign, I bet you'll end up hearing an interesting story.....

The code of ethics and the division of Real Estate do not allow for the marketing of Real Estate when the property is no longer for sale.
Simply call the listing agent and kindly ask that the sign be removed.

It is very unprofessional and the best way to get them removed is provide the board with the expired agents info and property location.

It looks like a used car lot when driving around these sub-divisions with old nasty signs everywhere.  We are in a rural area, so these agents from out of Town don't get back up here.  The local brokerages know better just leave them up to blast their colors.

If it is not made of metal, a can of lighter fluid and a match may prove helpful.

As a seller, my experience has been that the listing agents are never in a hurry to take down the "For Sale" sign - even after the house is in contract.

One house, which sold in one weekend, the REA actually was pretty honest. He asked me if he could keep the sign up and not put a "Sold" or "In Escrow" on it, because he knew the property was going to drive more phone calls.

So, to me, it's all about self-interest. If the REA believes it is in their interest to leave marketing for a listing in place, they will. If it's in their self-interest to take the marketing down to avoid the consequences....oh, wait. Could that be the problem?

I once previewed a house where there was the requisite real estate sign in the front yard from 'ABC Realty'. There was also the old sign from 'XYZ Realty' (big wooden frame and all) propped up on the side of the house.

As a buyer who has had signs left up, the day I move in I give them notice that if the sign isn't removed in 2 days it will go to the dump.

I would turn them in to your local board with a dated photo. Bad practice is not good for good agents and not good for clients either. Besides, isn't advertising beyond the date of the sale or contract considered a breach of duty under Article 12
