A complaint must be filed with the Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS® within 180 days of the alleged wrongful conduct occurred. It is advised that you become familiar with the Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual, as it sets forth the disciplinary measures that may be imposed by the Board of Directors. A violation of the Code of Ethics, Bylaws or Rules & Regulations could result in disciplinary action which may affect the individual’s membership in either or both organizations; however, the Association is not a governmental entity, and therefore, does not have authority to take action regarding the licensing status of its members.
To file an Ethics/Disciplinary Complaint, read and complete the following:
- Before you file an Ethics/Disciplinary Complaint

- Ethics/Disciplinary Complaint Form
- For reference, view SBAOR’s governing documents.
