Calgary, Alberta – On October 18, 2017, Jared Colby Jenkins, previously a mortgage associate in Calgary, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.
At the time of his application, Mr. Jenkins was the subject of conduct proceedings under the Real Estate Act. The issues under investigation pertained to allegations that Mr. Jenkins was involved in a mortgage fraud scheme; Mr. Jenkins did not respond to RECA’s requests for information as part of the investigation process.
The matter was referred to a Hearing Panel where it was alleged that Mr. Jenkins breached the Real Estate Act by failing to cooperate with a RECA investigation. Prior to the scheduled Hearing, Mr. Jenkins applied to RECA for a lifetime withdrawal from the industry.
The Real Estate Council of Alberta approved Mr. Jenkins’ application to withdraw, and this results in a voluntary lifetime prohibition from industry membership; conduct proceedings are now discontinued. At the time of Mr. Jenkins’ withdrawal from industry, there had been no disciplinary hearing, admissions, or findings of fact.
