Black, who was not at the hearing, was accused of writing nearly $10,000 in checks from several accounts he managed for community associations that are part of larger Villages at Cornwallis community and of failing to properly manage a rental unit for a private owner.
The ruling means that Black cannot sell real estate or manage rental properties in the state.
He could still manage subdivisions, said Miriam Baer, assistant director of the commissionís legal division.
Black could not be reached Thursday at a number listed under William Black in Durham.
According to a police report filed in February 2000 on behalf of the Tarleton West Homeowners Association, which is located in the Villages of Cornwallis at 3400 Yorktown Ave., money was embezzled from Nov. 1, 1999, to Feb. 17, 2000. No one was arrested in the case, a Durham police records clerk said. Baer said Tarleton was one of the communities involved.
Black wrote checks to himself, Baer said. He also wrote checks to others, purportedly to seal a roadway inside the subdivisions. The work was never done, Baer said. The commission saw the cancelled checks at the hearing, Baer said.
Black was also accused of "failing to collect rent proceeds and a security deposit and lease document from a tenant for an owner he managed a property for," Baer said. "His job was to get a tenant into [the property] and collect the rent."
