RECA Anonymous Tip Submission Form

Purpose

RECA’s mandate includes protecting against, investigating, detecting, and suppressing mortgage fraud as it relates to the real estate, mortgage, and real estate appraisal industries. For more information on what mortgage fraud is, please click here.

This webpage provides consumers, industry professionals, or other third parties with an opportunity to anonymously provide RECA information about mortgage fraud. If you wish to attach your name to a complaint then please do so here.

Is my anonymity guaranteed?

RECA cannot guarantee anonymity. Submission of information through this webpage does not track any personal information about the person who submitted it.  That being said, anyone investigated as a result of the information submitted may speculate on who submitted it. Please note that a statement or supporting documents may also inadvertently disclose information about who submitted the information.

What information should you include?

Please provide detailed, specific information. At a minimum, you should include:

  • dates of when events took place
  • property addresses
  • names and contact information of any person involved.
  • a detailed description on all events related to the potential mortgage fraud
  • any relevant supporting documents or communications

What will RECA do with the information?

RECA will review the information and determine if:

  • we have authority to investigate the allegations
  • there are sufficient particulars of what happened
  • the allegations give rise to a breach of the Real Estate Act, Rules, Bylaws or Regulations

If the above criteria are met, RECA will open an investigation into the conduct of the industry professional or persons engaging in activities that require a licence. As the person who submits the information is anonymous, they will not receive any status updates, notifications, or have any appeal rights concerning any investigative outcome.
