Section 9.7 Violation Review Hearings

If the recipient of a Notice of Fine wishes to dispute the finding of a violation or the sanction imposed, they may request a review within five (5) days of the date of the Notice of Fine. The review request should include the Notice of Fine, the reason he or she is disputing the finding of violation and/or fine and any relevant supporting documentation.

Violation review hearings will be conducted in accordance with the procedures outlined in the NAR Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual. When requested by a complainant, the MLS will process a complaint without revealing the complainant’s identity.  If a complainant is subsequently forwarded to a hearing and the original complainant does not consent to participating in the process, the MLS will appoint a representative to serve as the complainant.

A $250 administrative fee will be assessed if the violation(s) which are the subject of the hearing are determined to be valid by a hearing panel and/or the CVR MLS Board of Directors.
