Issues Affecting Property Owners

 

Filing a Complaint When Selling Your Home

If any issues arise during the sales process, you will need to file a formal ethics complaint to follow due legal process. Read on to learn more about filing an ethics complaint.

Real Estate Ethics Complaint Information

 

The Code of Ethics is enforced by a local board or local association of REALTORS®, and local boards/associations may also receive enforcement and mediation assistance from the Iowa Association of REALTORS® in the form of a professional standards hearing and/or assistance from the Iowa Association of Realtors legal counsel. As stated in the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice of the National Association of REALTORS®, REALTORS® should not knowingly or carelessly file false or unfounded ethics complaints.

To file an ethics complaint please fill out the following ethics complaint form and send it to your local board of REALTORS® office.

IAR Legal Counsel cannot represent consumers. If you need legal assistance, please contact your private attorney.
