Disciplinary Action Database

Access the DADB (password required) 


The ARELLO® Disciplinary Action Database is designed to assist real estate licensing authorities in their processes for evaluating the honesty, trustworthiness, and competency of license applicants by providing them a mechanism to help determine whether an applicant for licensure has had disciplinary action imposed by a real estate license authority in another jurisdiction. For more information about how your jurisdiction can take advantage of this valuable service, send an email to dadb@arello.org or contact us.

How It is Used

Most states/provinces/territories run the names of all their license applicants (resident, non-resident and renewal) by this database to ensure that these individuals have not been the subject of disciplinary action. The ARELLO® Disciplinary Action Database is a powerful consumer protection tool and is incredibly easy for regulators to utilize.

The Web-Based Interface

Regulatory officials or their designees needing to submit to or search the Disciplinary Action Database can now do so in real-time. Updates to the DADB are submitted and made available instantaneously. The web-based interface has also enabled ARELLO® to add improved capabilities in regard to security, search ability, and billing reconciliation for entities registered to search the DADB.

Benefits of the Disciplinary Action Database

  • Regulatory body has immediate access to disciplinary actions imposed internationally.
  • A license applicant's past disciplinary record (imposed by another jurisdiction) can be verified prior to license issuance by matching on name, birth date and/or last 4 digits of SSN.
  • Regulatory body may check all of their current licensees against the DADB either annually or otherwise to verify that no licensee has a recorded license sanction of record (particularly revocation or suspension).
  • Regulatory body could monitor nonresident licensees who hold multiple jurisdictional licenses and continually verify that no disciplinary action has been imposed by another jurisdiction.
  • Regulatory body has immediate access to validate licensure thereby eliminating jurisdictions having to complete a license history or license certification if used in conjunction with ARELLO.COM.

Fees for Searching the DADB

A Typical Example Illustrating the Value of the Disciplinary Action Database

NOTE: This is a true example. The name and other information have been modified.

Mr. Jere L Allen, SSN 2574 applied for a license and indicated that he only held a license in Tennessee. While checking the Disciplinary Action Database we found that a Jere Lee Allen with an SSN of 2574 also maintained a Mississippi license however, he had been suspended in Mississippi for 2 years due to commingling of funds (as stated in the investigative report). Application has been denied due to falsification of license application.
