Lorna Macneil - Lifetime Withdrawal from Industry
Calgary, Alberta - On January 25, 2017, Lorna Macneil, most recently a real estate broker operating in Fort McMurray and Medicine Hat, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.
At the time of her application, Ms. Macneil was the subject of conduct proceedings under the Real Estate Act related to shortages in trust fund accounts that held owner’s rent money and security deposits. In December 2016, RECA suspended Ms. Macneil’s real estate licence for not cooperating with the investigation.
At the time of Ms. Macneil’s withdrawal from industry, there had been no disciplinary hearing, admissions or findings of fact.
The Real Estate Council of Alberta approved Ms. Macneil’s application to withdraw, and this results in a voluntary lifetime prohibition from industry membership; conduct proceedings are now discontinued.
The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) is an independent, non-government agency, responsible for governing real estate, mortgage broker, property management, and real estate appraisal industry professionals under Alberta’s Real Estate Act. RECA’s mandate is to protect consumers and to provide services that enhance and improve the industry and the business of industry professionals.
