Code of Ethics Enforcement

COMPLAINT FILING PROCEDURE > Before you file an complaint form

If you wish to file an ethics complaint with the Board, you need to follow these steps:
Please read through the Articles of the Code of Ethics before writing your complaint. And be sure to read the Functions of the Grievance Committee for limitations on our process. As you compose your written complaint, cite an Article or Articles that you feel have been violated in any way.

Complete, sign and date the complaint form. Attach an explanation of the situation surrounding the complaint. Be as specific as possible. State what, when, where, why and how, etc., you think each Article was violated.

Attach copies of any and all pertinent documents such as listing agreements, agency agreements, HUD statements, purchase and sales agreements, addendums, etc.

Send the entire package, keeping a copy for yourself, to the Butler-Warren Association Board of REALTORSŪ, attention: Grievance Committee. Your complaint will then be processed.

The basis for filing a complaint against a REALTORŪ should be an allegation by the complainant that a REALTORŪ violated one or more of the articles of the Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORSŪ
