Appealing Land Agent Licensing Decisions

Appealing Land Agent Licensing Decisions

A person who has been refused a licence or whose licence has been suspended or cancelled may appeal the decision by serving the Minister of Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour (“the Minister”) a notice of appeal within 30 days of being notified of the refusal, cancellation or suspension.

Within 30 days of being served the notice of appeal, the Minister will appoint an appeal board to hear the appeal. The board is made up of 2 to 4 persons who are licenced under the Land Agents Licensing Act and a chairman designated by the Minister.

The Minister will set the time within which the appeal board is to hear the appeal and render a decision. A person who has commenced an appeal, may by filing an originating notice with the Court apply for an order reinstating the person’s cancelled licence or removing the suspension, pending the determination of the appeal. The court will hear the application no earlier than 2 days after the originating notice has been served on the Registrar. On hearing the application, the Court may reinstate a cancelled licence or remove the suspension of a suspended licence pending the determination of the appeal.

The appeal board may, by order, confirm the refusal, cancellation or suspension, direct that a licence be issued, reinstate a cancelled licence, or remove or vary a suspension. The Registrar or the person who initiated the appeal may appeal the decision of the appeal board by filing an originating notice with the Court within 30 days of being notified of the decision. The Court may make any order that the appeal board has the power to make.
