RULE TEXT

R162. Commerce, Real Estate.

[ R162-7. Enforcement.

R162-7-1. Filing of Complaint.

7.1. An aggrieved person may file a complaint in writing against a licensee; or the Division or Commission may initiate an investigation for an alleged violation of the provisions of these rules or of Utah Code Annotated Section 61-2-1, et seq. The Division may only entertain a complaint between licensees regarding commissions if the complaint alleges, or the Division suspects, a specific violation of Utah Code Annotated Section 61-2-11 or Section R162-6-1.

 

R162-7-2. Notice or Complaint.

7.2. When the Division notifies a licensee of a complaint against the licensee, or when the Division notifies a licensee that it needs information from the licensee, the licensee must respond to the notice in the manner specified in the notice within ten business days after receipt of the notice from the Division. Failure to respond to a notice or complaint or to any subsequent requests for information from the Division within the required time period will be considered an additional violation of these rules and separate grounds for disciplinary action against the licensee.

 

R162-7-3. Investigation and Enforcement.

7.3. The investigative and enforcement activities of the Division shall include the following: investigation of information provided on new license applications and applications for license renewal; evaluation and investigation of complaints; auditing licensees' business records, including trust account records; meeting with complainants, respondents, witnesses and attorneys; making recommendations for dismissal or prosecution; preparation of cases for formal or informal hearings, restraining orders or injunctions; working with the assistant attorney general and representatives of other state and federal agencies; and entering into proposed stipulations for presentation to the Commission and the director.

 

R162-7-4. Corrective Notice.

7.4. In addition to disciplinary action under Section 61-2-11, the Division may give a licensee written notice of specific violations of these rules and may grant a licensee a reasonable period of time, not exceeding 30 days, to correct a defect in that licensee's practices or operations. The licensee's failure to correct the defect within the time granted shall constitute separate grounds for disciplinary action against the licensee. The Division is not required to give a corrective notice and allow an opportunity to correct a defect before it may commence disciplinary action against a licensee.
