About the Offering: FEDERAL and CALIFORNIA STATUTORY and REGULATORY LAWS Mandatory Requirement for Initial State Licensing / Certification (QE) and Renewal (CE) Includes the required open-book exam.
Appraisers recognize that they have regulatory obligations but understanding which ones apply when doing federally related and real estate related lender work is challenging. A review of sanctions and disciplinary actions taken against appraisers by the Bureau of Real Estate Appraisers makes it clear that many details and nuances of the appraiser laws and regulations are being misunderstood. Common, unintentional errors impact both the reputations of individual appraisers as well as confidence in the competency and ethics of the appraisal profession. This seminar is designed to help you recognize and understand the laws and regulations most important to appraisers practicing in California.
