Filing a request for Arbitration
Complainants must submit along with Arbitration form A-1, a narrative description of the events that lead to the request. You must also include copies of all relevant real estate documents in your possession such as Listing Agreement, Purchase Agreement, MLS tickets, Agency Agreements or any other documents which support your claim.
The time limitation for filing an Arbitration complaint as written within the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual states:
There is a $500 arbitration-filling fee to be submitted along with the Request for Arbitration payable to DABOR. Once we receive your completed Form #A-1, narrative, pertinent documents and filing fee, we will forward it to the Grievance Committee for review at their next meeting.
The function of the Grievance Committee is to make only such preliminary review and evaluation of the request for arbitration as is required to determine (1) whether the matter is properly arbitrable; (2) whether arbitration is mandatory or voluntary based upon the requirements of Part Ten, Section 44 of the Manual; and (3) whether the proper parties are named in the request for arbitration. The Grievance Committee does not hold hearings and does not determine entitlement to awards.
