Hi All,

Although this pertains primarily to Floridians, there are parts which may apply to those of you in other states with an ambition to become certified in the Sunshine State.

On Friday, Governor Jeb Bush signed into law CS for SB 2238. This bill amends Chapte 475 of the Florida Statutes. Part I pertains to real estate brokers and sales associates. Part II pertains to appraisers.

Full text of the bill in PDF format is posted HERE!!

Just select the file 'Signed SB 2238.pdf ' It's a little over 100 pages, but the appraisal portion runs only pages 7 - 30. Effective date is July 1, 2003.

Most notable:

*Registered Assistant Appraisers become Registered Trainee Appraisers
*Post License Education will be required of Registered Trainee Appraisers
*No new Licensed Appraisers after July 1, 2003
*Supervisory Appraisers must inform the state of their Registered Trainees
*Registered Trainees can be compensated only from or through their Primary Supervisor
*FREAB gets rule making authority to regulate number of Registered Trainees a Supervisor can handle, what supervision entails and geographic proximity of Registered Trainees
*FREAB can enter into Mutual Recognition Agreements with other states. In other words, Florida is moving closer to reciprocity.

Let me know what you think.

Frank,

Congratulations are in order for your board's efforts to increase the integrity of the appraiser regulatory system and hold those who would train appraisers accountable to reasonable standards. All of the bords should show such diligence.

Jeff,

Rules will take a while. There is a procedure for adopting rules involving notice, workshops, rulemaking, public comment, legislative committee review, etc.

Here's the first step:

http://www4.myflorida.com/dbpr/re/freab_welcome.shtml

The Florida Real Estate Appraisal Board announces a rule workshop to
which everyone is invited at the time, date, and place shown below:

DATE AND TIME: July 8, 2003, 9:00 a.m.

PLACE: Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Division
of Real Estate, Room N901, 400 W. Robinson Street, Hurston Building,
North Tower, Orlando, Florida 32801, (407) 481-5632.

GENERAL SUBJECT MATTER TO BE CONSIDERED:

Workshop session to discuss Florida Administrative Code, Chapter 61J1
for possible changes. The purpose of the workshop is to perform the
Biennial Rule Review to ensure the rules comply with the newly
adopted statutory changes, pursuant to sections 120.536 and 120.74,
Florida Statutes.

In North Carolina we have a TWO Trainee rule, supervisor must ACCOMPANY trainee on first fifty appraisals and trainee cannot appraise more than 50 miles from office (alone).

All trainees on hand BEFORE the effective date of the rule were grandfathered in....but the supervisor cannot replace them if he has more than two.
