Ethics Complaints, Arbitration Requests and Related Information
More Information on: Ethics Complaints, Arbitration Requests and Related Information
REALTORS® are different from non-member licensees in that they voluntarily subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics. If you believe that a REALTOR® has violated one or more Articles of the Code of Ethics, you can file an ethics complaint alleging a violation(s) through the Gainesville-Alachua County Association of REALTORS® where the REALTOR® holds membership, or participates in a REALTOR® association-owned/operated MLS. You may search for a member's local affiliation here.
In addition, REALTORS® agree as a condition of membership to arbitrate contractual disputes and specific non-contractual disputes as provided for in Article 17 of the NAR Code of Ethics.

NAR currently requires members to complete the Code of Ethics training once per quadrennial cycle. This quadrennial cycle is closing this year. Check the list to make sure you have completed Code of Ethics in the last four years. Every REALTOR must complete this course by the end of 2016. Beginning with Cycle 5, the Code of Ethics will change from a Quadrennial schedule to a Biannual Schedule. Cycle 5 will begin January 1, 2017 and end December 31st, 2018.
