Summary

David Robert Hutchinson did not act with reasonable care and skill when he sent a photo of his buyer-client's deposit cheque to the seller's agent, but did not indicate that the cheque was not physically in his possession.

Results

A discipline committee of the Council has ordered the following:

  1. Mr. Hutchinson is reprimanded, and must pay a discipline penalty of $3,000.00 to the Council.
  2. At his own expense, Mr. Hutchinson must successfully complete the Real Estate Trading Services Remedial Education Course in the time period as directed by the Council.
