Complaints & Investigation

It is not surprising that disputes occasionally arise between licensees and consumers. When these situations arise, it is important to first attempt to resolve the issue with the licensee and, if that fails, with the broker. When all else fails, consumers may file written complaints with the Compliance team use the prescribed form. Note that the Commission cannot award damages to consumers.
