Real estate agents and brokers are required to provide honest information regarding real estate properties and transactions. From placing properties for sale to helping with the negotiation or transfer of residential and commercial properties, real estate agents and brokers make things happen. Because of their high profiles in home sale and lease transactions, real estate agents and brokers are often a target for litigation. The good news is that you don’t have to defend yourself against serious charges before the state licensing board alone. Jones Law Group in Columbus, Ohio represents real estate agents and brokers who are being sued or charged with violations. We have experience in real estate license defense and can put our knowledge to work for you.
At Jones Law Group, we understand how stressful it can be when real estate professionals are accused of unfair dealings and other offenses that could devastate their careers. Our experienced and knowledgeable attorneys are dedicated to helping real estate agents and brokers in Ohio protect their careers and livelihoods. Complaints may be filed against Ohio real estate agents and brokers for the following reasons:
After an accusation is made against you, you must provide a written response within a certain amount of time. Failure to submit a response could result in the denial of your right to a hearing. Immediately after you file a response, a request for discovery should be made so that you can obtain all of the evidence the board has against you.
If the board finds sufficient evidence against you, an investigation will be opened. You may be asked to cooperate with the investigator and provide a statement. An attorney can guide you through this process, potentially negotiating a resolution with the board’s legal counsel and avoiding an administrative hearing. If the board determines that you have committed a violation, you can challenge the accusation with a hearing. An attorney can defend you at an administrative hearing and help you protect your rights.
Defending your real estate license before the state licensing board can be stressful, time-consuming, and worrisome.
