Freeze orders

For information on a specific freeze order, please visit the Public Advisories section of the Real Estate Council of Ontario’s website.

Under the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, 2002 (REBBA), the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) may issue an order “freezing” the assets or trust funds of any registrant or former registrant if RECO believes that such an order is advisable for the protection of the public. RECO may also issue a notice of proposal to suspend or revoke a brokerage’s registration in the public interest.

Read this FAQ for more information about freeze orders and suspensions of registration.
