While under our warranty, you may pickup batteries from SCAOR at no cost to you.

If you feel there has been a violation of real estate law we advise you to contact the Delaware Real Estate Commission and/or a Delaware attorney that specializes in real estate. Please be advised that if you do file with either the Delaware Real Estate Commission or the Delaware court that doesn’t preclude you from filing anything here at the Board office; however, your case here at SCAOR will be held in abeyance until a ruling has been made by either the Commission or the court.
