TO ALL FLORIDA APPRAISERS

REMINDER: Have you registered the firm or business name of the company where you work and the physical location? Chapter 475.623, F. S. requires ALL Florida appraisers to do so. Effective November 25, 2007, Chapter 61J1-8.001(2) (a) (9), FAC provides for a $500 citation for failure to register. Registration may be completed by use of DRE Form 2065. This registration must be completed by July 1, 2008.

FYI: Below is a response from Beverly Ridenauer, Government Analyst II, Division of RE Section, on if you can verify if you have turned in Form 2065:

"At this moment, they cannot verify that the firm name has been registered, only the address. It will show on the Portal as "LL" or License Location. If the address that shows is not that of the office location, please tell them to send the form (fax or mail) so we can get it entered."

"In addition, we are working on making the Firm Name/Address accessible to appraiser licensees (similar to what brokers can do to add or delete names from the real estate companies). We hope to have all of that in place by renewal time."

Sent mine in 10/2006.

The RE 2065 form has changed since then. The new form has the option of registering a business/firm name.

The old form (which was available in 2006) did not have that option. It only had the option: Add additional Business Address.

Sent mine in again today, just in case. Faxed it twice and kept both receipts.

The form and the fax number can be found at www.myfloridalicense.com - go to DRE.

It is easy to comply, just in case. I don't know if I needed to, but what the hell, it didn't hurt much. I have my written documents, including a fax record it was sent and both documents were coverted to .pdf and are in secure storage just in case the investigator dude or dudette comes calling.

I feel...refreshed.

Thanks for the heads up.

OK - we were talking about this and my trainee says that he filled out 2065 when he sent in his packet. I also did - many moons ago. Under my profile it does list two addresses but does not list the company name. Should I send it in anyway? I'm corn-fused.

By the way, should we check"Register Business/Firm Name" or "Add additional Business Address - No Fee"

I did Register Business/Firm Name back in June. It took about a month for it to show on my profile.

I faxed all this info in a few months ago, just did a license search and company names not mentioned. Should I assume they have it or should I call to confirm?

I don't think they will fine us if we keep a record of when we FAXed it. It always takes forever for things to get updated online....

it took them a long time, and several faxes, to get mine updated a while back, but it appears to be correct now...
