Realtors Registrar

 
​The Unit was established in 1996 for the purpose of implementation of the Realtors Law and the Regulations made pursuant thereto, the main functions being to conduct licensing examinations, to issue licenses and keep a Register of Realtors.  Additionally, under the Freedom of Information Law 5759-1999, the Unit issues certificates with regard to the status of a person/broker in terms of the Realtors Law and also publishes, on the internet website, a list of Realtors who are duly authorized to engage in the business of real estate brokerage.

​The number of the duly authorized realtors as at the end of 2013, amounts to about 17,500 realtors. 

Enforcement of the Law and the handling of complaints against realtors does not come within the jurisdiction of the Realtors Registrar, but under the jurisdiction of the Consumer Protection Commissioner or the Israel Police.

In relation to complaints against realtors, which involve offences such as theft, fraud or forgery, the Israel Police must be contacted direct. 

Complaints against a person engaged in real estate brokerage without a license or a realtor engaging in real estate brokerage and whose license is not valid, as well as a realtor who has committed an offense under Section 13 of the Real Estate Brokers Law, 5756-1996, must be referred to the Consumer Protection Commissioner.  However prior to referral of the complaint, a check as to the status of the realtor must be made with the Realtors Registrar.

Offences under Sections 10, 11 and 12 have, with effect from April 7, 2013, been transferred from the criminal law to the disciplinary law.

Your attention is drawn to the fact that provisions of the disciplinary law are set out in detail in Amendment No. 7 which only came into force on April 7, 2013.
