A Vancouver realtor has been handed a hefty fine after falsely claiming a home built in 1976 was actually constructed in 2006.
The Real Estate Council of British Columbia has ordered Steven Sion Hok Oei, a realtor with RE/MAX, to pay a discipline penalty of $5,000 and a $1,500 of enforcement expenses.
In a decision posted online, the Council says Oei committed “professional misconduct.”
“He represented that the house on the property had been built in 2006, when he knew or ought to know that it was originally constructed in 1976,” reads the statement.
Oei must also successfully complete the Real Estate Trading Services Remedial Education Course.
