Again,more info is needed.

FREC may be the answer.
Getting a real estate attorney may be the right choice
Arbitration may be bettter, or...
.you could just be misinformed and not need to waste your time.

As I said before, more info needed. Why do you feel you have an illegal real estate activity issue? Once you answer this, then we can all direct you to a better, more informed resource to help you.

It depends on what you think is illegal. There are several places to report. What I have found is that what consumers think is illegal, is most often a miscommunication error. tell us more about what happened and if it was REALLY illegal, I will tell you the best place to go to report it.
As a 30 yr vet in this industry, I don't condone illegal activities either, so it is not that I don't believe you, but need more info to help you.

HELLO JOUHN,
You have had many answers, all great idea's, some questions to you as well.. It is time for us to hear back from you with more information.

We have all spent our time helping you, the least you could do is touch base and give more info and say thanks for the input.

I think this is what aggravates me the most about this forum, there is hardly ever any feedback from the original poster.

WE NEED CLOSURE ;-) LOL!!

Jouhn,

Sorry to learn of your troubles.

Step 1. Go to Pasco County Clerk of Courts and search the records http://www.pascoclerk.com/public-sup-svcs-form-or-name-search.asp for your name and verify the deed and mortgage are in your name.

Step 2. Take info if all is in order to the States Attorney for your area (he works free) and discuss the situation.

Step 3. If there is a cause of action, sit back relax, and watch the fireworks.

Good Luck,

Hi Jouhn. If this is in reference to your other question, the other agent might not be aware of his actions. Get to the root of the issue, gather your facts and consult the parties at question. If all else fails, like i mentioned in response prior, get an attorney and contact FREC / Florida Real Estate Commission and the Department of Business & Professional Regulations

Hello Jouhn,

If it is truly illegal, start with the brokerage company, then FREC (Florida Real Estate Commission)
