Hilltopprope…, Home Owner in Xenia, OH

What ethical standards are imposed on you and are there licensing boards that review the individuals? Your intro stresses honesty.

Asked by Hilltopproperties, Xenia, OH Tue Aug 23, 2011

What would you think if someone rented a vacation property and then cheated the person out of the rent? Would this be unethical and how would you suggest the owner collect these monies?

The ethics are the least of your worries, Hilltop. You have a renter, landlord, and missing rent money. I'd focus first on getting the money to where it belongs.

All the best,

Here are the ethical standards imposed on Realtors by the National Association of Realtors: http://www.realtor.org/mempolweb.nsf/pages/code

Understand that not all real estate agents are Realtors. If you were dealing with a non-Realtor, then those don't apply.

And, yes, there are licensing boards. Here's the link for Ohio: http://com.ohio.gov/real/

As for collecting money owed, I agree with Ron's suggestion: Small Claims Court.

Hope that helps.

Contact
If your grievance is with a licensed Realtor, you can contact the Board of Realtors they are members. All Realtors are licensed through the state, you can also submit a grievance there.

Or you can contact an attorney to discuss your options with regard to lost rents.

We are not perfect:

Can you name another profession that goes thru what Realtors do:
Politicians?
Bankers?
Stock Brokers?

You might try Small Claims Court:

Good luck and may God bless
