Decisions & Appeals

The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) is responsible for ensuring Alberta real estate brokerage, mortgage brokerage, property management, and real estate appraisal consumers are adequately protected.

Under the Real Estate Act, RECA has the authority to hold formal hearings to inquire into possible industry member breaches of the Act and discipline misconduct when appropriate. There is also the possibility for issuance of letters of reprimand and/or administrative penalties.

Prior to January 24, 2018, RECA’s publication guidelines set out that disciplinary decisions remain on the RECA website for a period of two years. In October 2017, Council approved revised publication guidelines. Any disciplinary or enforcement action dated January 24, 2018 or later will now remain on RECA’s website indefinitely. Old RECA disciplinary decisions remain available at RECA’s office and through a “Request for Industry Professional Authorization and Disciplinary History.”
