The panel members were Mr Jim Atkins PPNAEA (Honoured) (member panellist acting as the Chairperson for the Tribunal); Mr Richard Hair PPNAEA (Honoured) (member panellist); and Mr Stephen Shaw CBE (lay panellist).

The presenting Case Officer for Propertymark was Mr Ali Haider. Mr Jibunoh attended the Hearing via Zoom.

  • Conduct Rule 1.6: Key Elements
  • Conduct Rule 10: Declarations
  • Conduct Rule 13: General duty to uphold high standards of ethical and professional behaviour

  • Conduct Rule 1.6: Proven
  • Conduct Rule 10: Admitted
  • Conduct Rule 13: Proven


  • Conduct Rule 1.6: £600
  • Conduct Rule 10: £400

In addition, the costs of £1,080.82 from this Hearing and of the earlier adjourned Hearing were imposed against Mr Jibunoh in favour of Propertymark.

Closing Statement

The Tribunal made the following statement:

'We are disappointed that the penalties offered to you previously by Propertymark were not accepted, as they would have negated the necessity of the previous hearing date adjourned and today’s Tribunal. In your mitigation statement, you acknowledged and accepted our findings. It is our opinion that you should have sought advice in respect of your business activities in advance.'
