An Arbitration Complaint is an alternative to litigation and attempts to resolve a real estate dispute that generally involves money. A complaint must be filed with The Englewood Area Board of REALTORS within 180 days after the closing of the transaction, if any, or within 180 days after the facts and circumstances constituting the arbitrable matter could have been known in the exercise of reasonable diligence, whichever is later.
It is advised that you become familiar with the Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual, as it sets forth the rules used to process complaints. The arbitration hearing tribunal may provide legal and equitable relief to the parties; it does not, however, impose disciplinary action. Also, the Association is not a governmental entity; therefore, it does not have authority to take action regarding the licensing status of its members.
To file an Arbitration Complaint, read and submit the following:

Please note: There is a $500 filing fee for an arbitration.
If you have any questions regarding the filing of a complaint, contact the Board Office at 941-474-6664.
