To file for the arbitration of a commission dispute, you must use the Request and Agreement to Arbitrate Form A-1. On this form you must state the specific amount of your dispute. Your request for arbitration should include a supporting typewritten narrative or chronological summary of the events that occurred, as well as copies of any documents you feel will support your claim.
You can submit the form and pay online, or submit printed forms and supporting documents, along with a check for $300 payable to MCBOR to:
Medina County Board of REALTORS®
2530 Medina Road, Ste. 100
Medina Ohio 44256
A copy of your Request and Agreement to Arbitrate will be sent to the respondent, who will have 14 days to submit their response and deposit. The arbitration request fee of $300 will be collected from both parties to the dispute.
MCBOR forwards a complete copy of respondents reply to the Complainant. Complainant confirms they wish to continue with their complaint.
All related case materials are forwarded to the Grievance Committee for their review. The Grievance Committee's responsibility is to review the case and, based on certain guidelines they must follow, determine if the dispute is properly the subject of arbitration and referred to a Professional Standards Committee for an arbitration hearing.
The arbitration process may take between sixty to ninety days, allowing a reasonable time for correspondence, for review by the Grievance Committee, and then for scheduling of the arbitration hearing.
Note: Once a Request for Arbitration is forwarded to the Professional Standards Committee, the dispute is eligible for the alternative board mediation service.
