How to File for Arbitration

When a monetary dispute arises between REALTOR® members and is brought before the association, arbitration is mandatory, but the parties may choose whether to try mediation first.

Final Decision
In an arbitration hearing, the decision handed down by the Arbitration Panel is final and binding by law, as well as by the bylaws of the Association. The failure of a party to abide by the arbitration decision can be enforced by the court.
