of Mr. Raymond Duclos
NOTICE is hereby given that Mr. Raymond Duclos, chartered real estate broker (Certificate No. C1301) formerly employed by or authorized to act on behalf of Immeubles Sherbrooke, whose establishment is located at 200, rue du Bord de l’Eau in Sainte-Catherine-de-Hatley, has notably been found guilty by the Discipline Committee of the Association des courtiers et agents immobiliers du Québec of the offences summarized below:
2nd count: On or around March 17, 2003, with respect to an immovable, failing to promote the interests of the seller duly represented by her niece and failing to provide fair treatment to the promising buyer, party to a transaction referred to in section 1 of the Act, namely by failing to inform, in a timely fashion, the real estate agent representing him of the existence of a transaction proposal already in progress, i.e. a promise to purchase, the whole contrary to section 24 of the Rules of Professional Ethics of the ACAIQ.
3rd count: On or around March 17, 2003, with respect to an immovable, abusing the good faith of another member and using unfair practices against him, namely by:
a) around 2:40 p.m., failing to inform, in a timely fashion, a real estate agent of a promise to purchase;
b) around 5:40 p.m., falsely claiming that he himself was going to present a promise to purchase himself at 7:00 p.m.;
the whole contrary to sections 41 and 43 of the Rules of Professional Ethics of the ACAIQ.
On April 24, 2006, the Discipline Committee ordered a suspension of Mr. Raymond Duclos’ certificate for two concurring periods of three (3) months on these counts of the complaint, to take effect whenever he applies for reinstatement of his certificate or the issuance of a new certificate.
The decision of the Discipline Committee is enforceable from the date of the appeals deadline, i.e. May 30, 2006. The suspension of Mr. Raymond Duclos’ chartered real estate broker certificate will therefore become effective whenever he applies for reinstatement of his certificate or the issuance of a new certificate, for a period of three (3) months.
This notice is given in accordance with section 137 of the Real Estate Brokerage Act (R.S.Q., c. C-73.1).
