Erik Vande Merwe - Lifetime Withdrawal from Industry
Calgary, Alberta – On April 16, 2014, Erik Vande Merwe, previously a mortgage broker, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.
At the time of his application, Mr. Vande Merwe was the subject of conduct proceedings to determine whether he:
- Failed to disclose.
- Made misrepresentations.
- Participated in fraudulent activity.
At the time of the withdrawal application approval, there had been no disciplinary hearing, admissions of conduct or findings of fact. The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) approved Mr. Vande Merwe’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, and real estate appraisal industry professionals under Alberta’s Real Estate Act. RECA is mandated to protect consumers and to provide services that enhance and improve the industry and the business of industry professionals.
