The Board cannot hear or decide issues of law. Therefore, if your problem is legal or of a contractual nature, we suggest you contact an attorney.
The Board cannot, and will not consider awarding compensatory or punitive damages; and should any fines be levied against any member, those funds would go to the Akron Cleveland Association of REALTORS®. If you would like the Board to arbitrate a dispute involving a REALTOR®, please send a summary of the events in a letter stating your desire for information on the Board’s Dispute Resolution System. You will be contacted if the Board determines that the dispute can be arbitrated.
The Board of REALTORS® does not control licenses, and membership is entirely voluntary on the part of real estate licensees. The Board, therefore, has no jurisdiction to hold hearings involving real estate licensees who are not members of this Board. Should your complaint be against a licensee who is not a member of this Association, we suggest you contact the Ohio Real Estate Commission at 1 (614) 466-4100
