A regulatory complaint has been filed against you. Now what? Discover why state boards and agencies make the decisions they do, what federal oversight requirements guide them, and how a state regulator’s investigation (including disciplinary action) proceeds by peeking behind the regulatory curtain. Developed by Craig Steinley, SRA, AI-RRS, current President of AARO (Association of Appraiser Regulatory Officials), with input from regulators and board members (who are appraisers) and attorneys who defend appraisers, this 4-hour seminar discusses who files complaints, due process for an appraiser, and the steps to take when you are named in a complaint. With this knowledge, you’ll have an advantage in resolving a complaint and better yet, avoiding one in the first place!
Upon completion of this seminar, participants should be able to:
- Recognize distinctions in function and process between an appraiser board and an appraiser regulatory agency.
- Identify events that lead to complaints against real estate appraisers and ways to channel that energy to bring about a better outcome.
- Identify the steps an appraiser may take when notified that a complaint against the appraiser has been received by the regulator.
- Analyze both the perspective and the due process requirements of the regulator and its investigator when processing and investigating an allegation or complaint.
- Itemize how a state regulator processes a complaint and the possible outcomes along the way—from intake through the response, investigation, findings, and eventual disposition and possible sanctions.
- Discover various appeal options available to an appraiser in the event of an adverse disciplinary finding and sanctions.
