The Agents Licensing Board is conducting an inquiry into an alleged breach of the Agents Licensing Act by First National Real Estate Framptons. Karen Avery, Senior Director Licensing, Department of Business, says the board is conducting the inquiry "in its own right" and the alleged breach relates to the section which states: "A licensed agent who … publishes, or causes to be published an advertisement or other statement that is false, misleading or likely to deceive a person … is guilty of a breach of the rules of conduct for agents."
