  • Respondent Stotlar failed to see that all agreements of the parties were in writing and that signed copies of the agreements were delivered to the Complainants. The agreement by the builder to purchase the property of Complainants was not reduced to writing. Complainants did not receive a signed copy of the August 27, 1999 Real Estate Contract.

  • Respondent Stotlar made substantial misrepresentations to Complainants. Respondent represented to Complainants that the builder was an experienced and competent builder and that Respondent had no interest or relationship with the builder.  Respondent knew that the builder had some experience in construction and that the builder relied on Respondent to oversee the construction of Respondent’s and other clients’ homes, and Respondent had a verbal agreement with the builder to share the profits from the construction of Complainants’ and others homes.
  • In another complaint Mr. Stotlar did not protect and promote the interest of the Complainants by not recording or advising Complainants to record with the Faulkner County Clerk the Note and Mortgage in the amount of $40,563.65 which was executed at the July 10, 2000 closing of Lot 56.
  • He failed to see that all agreements of the parties were in writing.

  • Mr. Stotlar made substantial misrepresentations to Complainants. He represented to Complainants that he had no interest or relationship with the builder and that the builder was an experienced home builder when Respondent Stotlar knew that the builder had only been in the construction business part time and held a full time job in addition to the construction company and that the builder relied on Respondent to oversee the construction of Respondents’ home and others.
