Anthony Roland Boos, as managing broker at Cascade Realty, was responsible for supervising a licensee providing rental property management services to the owners of a property.
Mr. Boos did not confirm that the licensee had collected a security deposit and a pet deposit from the tenants of the property, as stipulated in the Tenancy Agreement and Service Agreement. He did not ensure that the licensee completed a move-in condition inspection of the property, as required under section 23 — will open in a new tab of the Residential Tenancy Act, and as stipulated in the Service Agreement.
When the tenants terminated the Tenancy Agreement, Mr. Boos did not ensure that a move-out condition inspection was completed, as required under section 35 — will open in a new tab of the Residential Tenancy Act, and as stipulated in the Service Agreement.
Managing brokers must be in active charge of the business of the brokerage, and must ensure an adequate level of supervision for licensees at the brokerage. Mr. Boos failed to comply with these requirements, contravening section 6(2) of the Real Estate Services Act and section 3-1(1) of the Rules.
A discipline committee of the Council has ordered the following:
- Mr. Boos is reprimanded.
