Ethics Complaints, Arbitration Requests and Related Information
REALTORS are different from non-member licensees in that they voluntarily subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics. If you believe that a REALTOR has violated one or more Articles of the Code of Ethics, you can file an ethics complaint alleging a violation(s) through the Midwestern Ohio Association of REALTORS where the REALTOR holds membership, and participates in a REALTOR association-owned/operated MLS.

In addition, REALTORS agree as a condition of membership to arbitrate contractual disputes and specific non-contractual disputes as provided for in Article 17 of the NAR Code of Ethics.
