The Province has appointed Micheal Noseworthy as the new Superintendent of Real Estate.
In a release posted Monday morning, the government says Noseworthy is an experienced regulator and public sector leader.
He recently served as a senior government regulator for the Yukon.
“I look forward to drawing upon my experiences as both a regulator and a lawyer with experience in real estate and administrative law to serve the interests of British Columbia’s real estate consumers by working swiftly to implement the reforms initiated by the government,” Noseworthy said in a statement from the government.
Noseworthy’s appointment comes after the Province announced earlier this year it would be ending self-regulation of the real estate profession.
An advisory group on real estate regulation released a report with 28 recommendations.
The changes to the Real Estate Services Act come into effect September 30.
However, the Real Estate Council will continue to be responsible for licensing, licensee and public education, as well as investigating licensee conduct and discipline.
Noworthy’s appointment takes effect October 19, 2016.
