Calgary, Alberta – The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) is warning consumers about Dreamland Homes, which has been offering real estate and mortgage services without a licence in the Calgary area.
Dreamland Homes, formerly operating as Nawab Homes, is an unlicensed brokerage operated by two unlicensed individuals: Azher Haleem Chaudhary (Chaudhary) and Syed Hassan-Nawab (Nawab).
In 2017, RECA issued a $25,000 administrative penalty to Nawab Homes for unauthorized dealing in mortgages.
Since then, RECA has received several complaints about unlicensed dealings in real estate and mortgages by Dreamland Homes, Chaudhary, and Nawab.
Using licensed brokerages and individual licensees protects you as a consumer. It ensures the licensee has the necessary education and experience to best provide you services and protects you under the consumer protection fund in case of fraud or breach of trust.
RECA urges consumers and licensees to verify the licence status of brokerages and individuals on RECA’s website by following these steps:
- go to RECA’s “Find a Licensee” search tool
- click “search by person” or “search by brokerage”
- type the full name, click “search”
- check whether the status is “active” in the far left column
Chaudhary and Nawab have many aliases in their dealings with consumers and licensees:
Chaudhary is also known as:
- Azher Haleem Chaudhary
- Azher Haleem
- Azher Chaudhary
Nawab is also known as:
- Nawab Rizvi
- Hassan Nawab
- Syed Rizvi
- Hassan-Nawab Rizvi
- Syed Hassan
