The enforcement jurisdiction of the Alabama Real Estate Commission extends over persons and companies who have an Alabama real estate license and to those who practice real estate without being properly licensed. If a licensee is found guilty of violating License Law, the Commission may impose a fine and/or reprimand the licensee and may also suspend or revoke the license. The Commission may also order the licensee to complete continuing education courses and/or make restitution to accounts containing funds to be held for other parties.
In cases where unlicensed activity is found, the Commission may issue a cease and desist order and, upon hearing, may impose fines.
Whenever a formal complaint is filed, the Commission holds a formal hearing thereon. The place of the hearing is determined by the Commission and considers the convenience of any consumers involved as witnesses. At the hearing, the Commission submits evidence in support of the allegations of violations of the License Law or a Commission Rule and the accused party may present evidence and cross-examine the Commission's witnesses.
Any order entered by the Commission as a result of such a hearing is appealable to the circuit court of Alabama.
