Disciplinary Action by the Virginia Real Estate Appraiser Board

Board Disciplinary Actions

If a complaint is filed against an appraiser licensed by the Virginia Real Estate Appraiser Board (the Board), the

complaint is reviewed by the Compliance and Investigations Division (CID) of DPOR to determine if a violation of

the Board’s laws or regulations may have occurred. If there is probable cause of a violation, an investigation is

initiated. If the investigation reveals that one or more violations may have occurred, the licensee receives notice to

appear at an informal fact-finding conference (IFF) to address these alleged violations.

In some cases the licensee may be offered a pre-IFF Consent Order. A Consent Order is an agreement between

the licensee and the Board consisting of specific violations and sanctions. Pre-IFF Consent Orders eliminate the

time and expense associated with conducting an IFF.

If an IFF is held, a recommendation from the IFF hearing officer consisting of violations and proposed sanctions is

submitted to the Board for consideration at its next regularly scheduled meeting. The Board can take the following

disciplinary actions against a licensee: assess a monetary penalty; suspend or revoke a license; place an

individual on probation, require additional education, or deny renewal. A licensee can continue to practice as an

appraiser throughout the disciplinary process until the Board either revokes or suspends his license.
