Tribunal Hearings and Terminations

We arrange disciplinary hearings at which a Tribunal considers cases involving more serious breaches of our Membership and Conduct Rules. Minor matters can be dealt with internally and will not appear in the list of reports published below, whatever the sanction applied.

Tribunals are selected from the Tribunal Panel and comprise of three people of which there will be at least one lay person and one property professional with experience of the relevant property discipline. One shall act as the Chair of the Tribunal

Sanctions Available to the Tribunal and Appeals Tribunal 

You can view the latest Sanctions Policy here. However, for breaches that occurred prior to 1 January 2015, the previous document will be referred to which can be viewed here.

Whether the sanctions imposed by the Tribunal Panel are published depends on the level of severity of the breach. The Publications Policy outlining this can be obtained here

Terminations for Financial Irregularities

We have the power to terminate the membership for members of any divisions of Propertymark if a member is deemed to have failed to manage their personal and/or professional finances appropriately.

This could be on the basis of a real risk of insolvency, actual insolvency or if we receive applications for compensation from consumers under its Client Money Protection Scheme.

Any termination regarding financial irregularities from 2011 onward will be published online.

Please note: some property firms are structured as franchises which will mean that any termination solely relates to the specific franchise. In these circumstances the termination has no relevance to other franchises within the same group even if they trade using the same name.
