B.C. real estate regulator clamps down on activities of ‘Wolf of Burrard’

Article content continued

The order, issued Friday, includes details about five complaints.

They started in May 2020, but one received by the superintendent in October 2020 was related to a previous complaint that had been filed about Roberts in July 2018.

Roberts was licensed to provide rental property management services from April 2018 to February 2019 and as a real estate agent from December 2018 to February 2019, according to the order, which added his licence was “surrendered by his managing broker.”

Two complaints, the order alleges, involved security deposits taken after the signing of long-term leases where the property owners said their properties were not on the market.

One complaint involved a file with the Vancouver Police Department, which had received numerous complaints related to Roberts, according to the order. Another involved a civil claim in B.C. court.

In the other, Roberts accepted $1,850 as a security deposit for a three-bed room apartment, the order alleges. The owner told the superintendent he had never rented out his property and lived there himself, the order alleges.
