Summary

A discipline committee of the Real Estate Council of British Columbia (the “Council”) accepted the Consent Order Proposal submitted by Gurpal (Pauly) Singh Dhillon (“Mr. Dhillon”), on his own behalf and on behalf of Pauly Dhillon Personal Real Estate Corporation (“PD Personal Real Estate Corporation”), and found that Mr. Dhillon and PD Personal Real Estate Corporation committed professional misconduct when:

  1. he sent an email to the listing agent wherein he led the listing agent to believe that:
    1. he was in possession of the original bank draft when he knew or should have known that that was not true, as the buyers had only provided him with the photocopied bank draft; and
    2. he had attached the photocopied bank draft that he purported was a copy of the original bank draft, when in fact it was a scanned copy of the photocopied bank draft that the buyers had provided to him, and
  2. while acting as the buyers’ agent in relation to the purchase of a property he sent a text message to the listing agent wherein he expressly advised the listing agent that he was in possession of the original bank draft when he knew or should have known that that was not true, as his clients had only provided him with the photocopied bank draft.

Results

A discipline committee of the Council has ordered, and Mr. Dhillon and PD Personal Real Estate Corporation have agreed to, the following penalties:

  1. a suspension of 30 days (from November 18, 2020 to December 18, 2020, inclusive);
  2. a discipline penalty of $7,500;
  3. enforcement expenses of $1,500; and
