A second B.C. real estate agent has been ordered to pay more than $30,000 for failing to notify his clients about an impending special levy before they purchased a condo in White Rock.
Jitendra Angelo Dehideniya has six months to pay the $30,000 discipline penalty plus $1,500 in enforcement expenses under a consent order he agreed to with the B.C. Financial Services Authority.
He must also complete the Real Estate Trading Services Remedial Education Course at UBC’s Sauder School of Business within three months, according to the order.
The discipline stems from an incident that occurred in 2018. At the time, Dehideniya had only recently joined Sutton Group – West Coast Realty and was a junior member of the group that marketed itself as “The BC Elite Real Estate Group,” according to the consent order.
