Imagine that you and your spouse are a young couple that is putting a large part of that first five years income into the purchase of a house. The monstrously large down payment is collected, the loan, at a high interest rate, is approved, the papers are signed and youre ready to take possession. Then problems begin to occur. The supposedly new plumbing in your dream house begins rusting, the roof that was just retarred has more leaks in it than a Washington Cabinet meeting and the extra water begins to make your brand new home look like the Titanic just before it went down. This is not an everyday occurrence, but it does happen, even when you deal with a licensed real estate agent. But those that feel victimized do have some recourse, the Real Estate Recovery Fund. The Real Estate Recovery Fund was established in August 1963 and is money set aside by law (Arizona Revised Statutes 32-2186) to help people who are proven to be victims of wrongdoing on the part of licensed real estate agents in Arizona, said Silvia Arellano, assistant commissioner, Arizona Department of Real Estate. There are more than 40,000 licensees in the state and the fund was set up for those who are victimized by some type of real estate fraud. Originally, the statutes did not cover the cost of attorney fees and that provision often kept people from filing because of lack of finances, Arellano said. The law was changed in August 1963 and allowed more to file because it now includes payment of attorney fees. The money for the fund comes from the licensees and does not use state tax dollars, according to the revised Arizona Statute. The start-up money for the fund was acquired through additional fees paid into the fund for agents seeking their first licenses. When applying for their original license, a broker payed an additional $20 and a salesman an additional $10. According to the statute, if after that collection the fund has less than $200,000, additional monies will be received from brokers and salesmen renewing their licenses. They will have to pay an additional $10 for brokers and $5 for salesmen. Those fees are refundable if the .license is not granted or renewed. The commissioner of the Department of Real Estate, Richard B. Nicholls, who is in charge of the fund, is allowed by law to use up to $50,000 for publicity about the fund. Anyone who has won a court case against a licensed real estate agent is eligible to apply for redress from the fund if after making an effort to collect from the agent is unable to do so for some reason, such as death, bankruptcy, or if the agent has disappeared. The money the fund pays covers actual damages, court costs and attorneys fees, which are awarded to the victim upon winning a case against an agent which has violated the Real Estate Departments statutes or rules. The maximum amount of money awarded is $15,006 per transaction or if the agent has committed a number of violations, the fund can pay as much as $30,000. Arellano warned against people using the fund as a first course of action and pointed out that the fund is to be used only after all other methods have been exhausted. An applicant to the fund must have gone through the complete court procedure and have made some effort to collect from the agent. She said the fund awarded $238,-599.31 during fiscal 1983-84 and has paid more than $130,000 so far this year with many cases still pending. She said activity for the fund has increased lately because of two changes in the law: 1) Attorneys fees are now included. 2) The amount of the award increased to lassiinKsss Scene $15,000 and $30,000. She said lawyers are just becoming aware of the fund and now people can afford to apply because they will not have to pay the brunt of the court costs beforehand. She said many of the lawyers will take a percentage of the award instead of a retainer up front. Other provisions exist to collect. A court case cannot take place more than five years after the sale was made. The fund also covers transactions that were started on or after July 1, 1964, providing that the claimant files a verified claim in the court after all reviews and appeals have concluded. After 10 days, a claimant will receive a written notice from the commissioner on whether he may apply for repayment from the fund. The funds outward appearance seems to be ideal, but Dennis Kelly, president of the Northern Arizona Board of Realtors questions the use of the fund. There is very little being used. The State Board of Realtors is a bit disgusted because the money is just sitting there collecting interest.

He said that there was no cap on it and felt that paying every year could be a waste. Arellano verified that there is no cap on the amount in the fund, which now has more than $1.5 million. Despite tbe problems that Kelly feels exist with the system, the money is still there and if you feel that you qualify for some type of redress from the department or fund, the commissioner suggests in a pamphlet that the case be handled by an attorney because the procedure is complex. The steps to apply to the fund are: 1) Notify the commissioner in writing when a lawsuit is filed against a licensed agent, which may result in a claim for payment from the fund. 2) Obtain a valid judgment against the licensed agent winning the court case and winning a specific amount of damage. 3) Show that a reasonable effort was made to collect on the judgment from the agent who was found liable in the case and that either the total amount of the judgment or some portion of that judgment couldnt be collected. 4) Apply to the court for an order directing payment from the recovery fund for the amount of the judgment that couldnt be collected. Anyone who files to the fund knowing that statements made were false or contained any material misstatement of fact is guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor, according to the statute. Also, anyone applying to the fund without following all the procedures set down by the statute has waived any rights to money.
