The agency proposal follows:

Summary

Pursuant to Executive Order No. 66 (1978) and N.J.S.A. 52:14B-5.1c, N.J.A.C. 13:40A is scheduled to expire on December 4, 2007. The rules in this chapter were originally promulgated in order to implement the provisions of the Real Estate Appraisers Act, N.J.S.A. 45:14F-1 et seq., which was enacted in 1991.

As required by Executive Order No. 66 (1978), the State Real Estate Appraiser Board (the Board) has reviewed these rules and has determined that the rules continue to be necessary, reasonable and proper for the purposes for which they were originally promulgated. However, the Board believes some changes to the existing rules are necessary for purposes of clarification.

Following is a summary of all subchapters together with amendments and clarification, if applicable, and the rationale therefore: Subchapter 1 contains the purpose and scope at N.J.A.C. 13:40A-1.1, the relevant definitions of the chapter at N.J.A.C. 13:40A-1.2 and the scope of practice at N.J.A.C. 13:40A-1.3. The Board is proposing to amend the definition of "Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP)" in N.J.A.C. 13:40A-1.2 to delete the reference to annual publication with an effective date of January 1 of the current year. The Board is deleting this reference since USPAP is no longer published annually and replacing it with July 1, 2006, as well as proposing that the standards be incorporated by reference "as amended and supplemented."

Subchapter 2 sets forth the certification requirements for general real estate appraisers. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-2.1 requires the successful completion of a Board-approved examination. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-2.2 provides the eligibility requirements for admission to the examination. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-2.1(a)6 has been amended to reflect the current criminal history background check procedures used by the State. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-2.3 and 2.4 set forth, respectively, the education and experience requirements for certification as a general real estate appraiser. The subchapter also includes, at N.J.A.C. 13:40A-2.5, requirements for the issuance of a temporary visiting certificate for a certified general real estate appraiser.

Subchapter 2A sets forth the certification requirements for residential real estate appraisers. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-2A.1 requires the successful completion of a Board-approved examination. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-2A.2 provides the eligibility requirements for admission to the examination. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-2A.2(a)6 has been amended to reflect the current criminal history background check procedures used by the State. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-2A.3 and 2A.4 set forth, respectively, the education and experience requirements for certification as a residential real estate appraiser. The subchapter also includes, at N.J.A.C. 13:40A-2A.5, requirements for the issuance of a temporary visiting certificate for a certified residential real estate appraiser.

Subchapter 3 sets forth licensing requirements for real estate appraisers. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-3.1 requires the successful completion of a Board-approved examination. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-3.2 provides the eligibility requirements for admission to the examination. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-3.2(a)6 has been amended to reflect the current criminal history background check procedures used by the State. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-3.3 and 3.4 set forth, respectively, the education and experience requirements for licensure as a real estate appraiser. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-3.5 is reserved. The subchapter also includes, at N.J.A.C. 13:40A-3.6, the requirements for the issuance of a temporary visiting license for a licensed real estate appraisers.

Subchapter 4 pertains to the requirements for trainee permits and other responsibilities of an applicant for or participant in the real estate appraisal trainee program. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.1 sets forth the purpose and scope of the voluntary real estate appraiser trainee program. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.2 is reserved. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.3 establishes the educational requirements for each applicant applying for a trainee permit. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.4 establishes the annual trainee permit renewal. The responsibilities of the trainee are set forth in N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.5 and the responsibilities of the supervising appraiser are set forth in N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.6. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.7 requires a trainee to maintain a log and sets forth the information that must be included in that log. The Board is proposing to amend N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.8, continuing education requirements, to require trainees who hold a trainee permit for more than two years to retain continuing education documentation since such individuals must complete the continuing education requirements. In addition, the Board is proposing to include that an individual holding a trainee permit for more than two years may request an extension of time to satisfy continuing education requirements. This holds trainees to a standard consistent with that applied to licensees with respect to documentation of continuing education and may be deemed a codification of the current administrative practice, whereby the processing and granting of renewal applications for trainee permits may be delayed until continuing education requirements have been met. Subchapter 5 pertains to the continuing professional education of all real estate appraisers. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.1 establishes that appraisers must complete the required continuing education before his or her license or certification is renewed. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.2 is reserved. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.3 sets forth the requirement that, upon renewal of a license or certification, the real estate appraiser must complete the appropriate continuing education requirement. The Board is proposing to amend N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.3 to prohibit the carryover of continuing education credits. The section heading of N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.3 includes the words "carryover prohibited," but no rule was established prohibiting the carryover. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.4 provides that all licensed and certified real estate appraisers must attend a minimum seven hour course on USPAP every two years. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.5 requires the Board to maintain a list of all approved continuing education courses, lectures and programs and provides that an applicant may apply to the Board for pre-approval of course offerings. If a course has not been pre-approved, the Board has the discretion to determine whether to award the appraiser continuing education credit. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.6 sets forth the acceptable continuing education activities and course topics. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.7 establishes the acceptable sources of continuing education. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.8 sets forth the required documentation a license or certificate holder must retain to verify continuing education attendance and/or completion. The Board is proposing to amend N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.8(b)1 to have the documentation rules apply to certificate holders. Currently, the rule is that if a licensee attends courses, seminars and training programs approved by the Board, the licensee is required to maintain a Uniform Continuing Education Form or other form acceptable to the Board, signed and dated by both the applicant and the course instructor(s), attesting that the licensee attended an approved continuing education program. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.9 establishes the responsibilities of continuing education providers. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.10 provides that the Board may grant an extension of time to appraisers to satiety continuing education requirements. The Board is proposing new subsection (e) to inform licensees or certificate holders that if the Board grants an extension of time to satisfy continuing education requirements, that extension of time only applies to the continuing education requirements in New Jersey. Subchapter 6 sets forth the standards for conducting appraisals. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-6.1 requires that, at a minimum, all appraisals must conform to the USPAP in effect on the date the appraisal was prepared.

Subchapter 7 sets forth general provisions applicable to all real estate appraisers, including a fee schedule at N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.1. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.2 provides that an appraiser must include his or her designation and State license or certification number on all appraisal reports. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.3 sets forth the proper use of designations and abbreviations. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.4 provides the criteria for qualifying education instructors and USPAP instructors. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.5 establishes mixed practices that the Board deems a conflict of interest. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.6 provides that license and certification renewal must be done biennially. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.7 provides the Board's authority to reinstate the license or certification of an applicant whose license or certificate has been suspended for failure to renew provided he or she otherwise qualifies for licensure or certification.

N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.8 establishes the Board's authority to deny or revoke a license or certification if the applicant and/or holder of a license or certification has a criminal history record of conviction for certain crimes and offenses. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.9 provides that any disciplined licensee or certificate holder must not engage in the practice of real estate appraising. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.10 requires all licensees and certificate holders to notify the Board of any change of address of record within 10 days. Service of process of any administrative complaint or other process at the address of record shall be deemed adequate notice.

Subchapter 8 provides for certification or licensure by endorsement. The Board has determined that the comment period for this proposal shall be 60 days; therefore, pursuant to N.J.A.C. 1:30-3.3(a)5, this proposal is excepted from the rulemaking calendar requirement.

Social Impact

The rules proposed for readoption will continue to have a positive social impact. The Board believes that the existing rules, which have been in effect for the past five years, have protected the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of New Jersey by identifying those individuals who are qualified and legally authorized to engage in the practice of real estate appraising. The rules positively affect the regulated community by setting forth requirements and procedures for the practice of real estate appraising for the benefit of all trainees, licensed or certified real estate appraises and applicants for licensure or certification. The readoption of N.J.A.C. 13:40A is essential in order for the Board to continue to regulate the practice of real estate appraising, to identify those individuals who are qualified to engage in the practice of real estate appraising, and to ensure that every trainee, licensee or certificate holder is aware of the procedures connected with licensure and certification. The readoption of the existing rules will continue to maintain the established standards and provide the public the continued protection and confidence in the real estate appraising field. The rules will continue to apply to all persons applying for licensure as licensed real estate appraisers or certification as certified residential real estate appraisers or as certified general real estate appraisers and to persons licensed or certified by the Board of Real Estate Appraisers in the State of New Jersey. In addition to the existing rules, the Board proposes several amendments to the rules to ensure the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of New Jersey. The Board proposes these clarifying amendments to ensure that every trainee, licensee or certificate holder is aware of the procedures connected with licensure and certification.

Economic Impact

The rules proposed for readoption with amendments will not have any new economic impact on the approximately 2,830 individuals who are trainees, or certified or licensed real estate appraisers.

Subchapter 2 will continue to impose application and criminal background check fee for those individuals applying for certification as a general real estate appraiser and for those individuals applying to the Board for a temporary visiting certificate as a general real estate appraiser.

Subchapter 2A will also continue to impose application and criminal background check fee for those individuals applying for certification as a residential real estate appraiser and for those individuals applying to the Board for a temporary visiting certificate as a residential real estate appraiser.

Subchapter 3 will continue to impose application and criminal background check fee for those individuals applying for licensure as a licensed real estate appraiser and for those individuals applying to the Board for a temporary visiting license as a licensed real estate appraiser.

Subchapter 4 will continue to impose an application fee for those individuals applying for a trainee permit.

Subchapter 5, which establishes continuing professional education, will continue to have an economic impact upon trainees who hold a permit for more than two years, licensees and certificate holders since these individuals will have to pay the cost of each course in order to comply with the required number of credits upon renewal. Although this will have some economic impact, the requirement of continuing education will ensure that appraisers participate in programs that maintain and increase their skill, knowledge and competency in real estate appraising.

N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.1, which establishes the fee schedule, remains the same upon readoption. The listed fees will continue to impose an economic impact upon trainees and certified or licensed real estate appraisers. The fees collected under the fee schedule fund the Board's operations and investigations and are set at a rate not to exceed the cost of maintaining the Board's activities. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.6, 7.7, 7.8 and 7.9 will continue to have an economic impact upon licensees and certificate holders who fail to comply with the rules because these individuals can be assessed with a penalty. In addition, if a licensee or certificate holder does not renew his or her license or certification prior to its expiration date, the licensee or certificate holder will be subject a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. In order to reinstate a license or certification suspended for failure to renew within 30 days of its expiration, the licensee or certificate holder will have to pay an additional fee. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.8 establishes the bases upon which the Board can revoke a licensee's license or a certificate holder's certification. As a result, this imposes an economic impact upon licensees and certificate holders whose licenses or certificates are revoked as this may lead to a loss of income, and a fee will have to be paid upon reinstatement. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.9 establishes that disciplined licensees or certificate holders who continue engaging in any work or activities in connection with any appraisal assignment for real estate located in New Jersey shall be deemed to be engaging in professional misconduct. The operations of the Board serve a vital function for the regulated community. The Board ensures that licensees and certificate holders are competent to practice by creating guidelines for licensure, certification, qualifying education and continuing education. The Board also investigates complaints and through that function directly protects the public interest. For those reasons, while the fees do economically impact on the regulated community, that impact is justified by the service that the Board provides to the regulated community and the consumers who utilize such services.

Federal Standards Statement

A Federal standards analysis is not required because the rules proposed for readoption with amendments are dictated by State statutes and are not subject to Federal requirements or standards, although the rules contain standards and requirements that are the same as those Federal standards set forth in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice published by the Appraisal Standards Board of the Appraisal Foundation, as well as standards set forth by the Appraiser Qualification Board (AQB) of the Appraisal Foundation.

Jobs Impact

The Board does not believe that the rules proposed for readoption with amendments will either increase or decrease jobs in the State.

Agriculture Industry impact

The Board believes the rules proposed for readoption with amendments will have no impact upon the agriculture industry in New Jersey.

Regulatory Flexibility Analysis

Currently there are approximately 2,830 licensed or certified real estate appraisers. If for the purposes of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, N.J.S.A. 52:14B-16 et seq., real estate appraisers are deemed "small businesses," then the following analysis applies. The readopted provisions of the rules contain the same compliance, recordkeeping and reporting requirements previously imposed by the Board on its licensees and certificate holders.

In general, the educational requirements impose compliance, recordkeeping and reporting requirements for those individuals applying for certification as general real estate appraisers or residential real estate appraisers or licensure as real estate appraisers. Each applicant must comply with the educational requirements established by "The Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria and Interpretation of the Criteria" as promulgated by the AQB of the Appraisal Foundation, record their compliance and then report their completion of the educational requirements to the Board in order to be eligible to sit for the examination.

The requirements for a temporary visiting certificate or license also impose compliance and reporting requirements upon appraisers licensed or certified by another state. Each licensee or certificate holder must apply to the Board for the temporary certificate or licensure. Upon issuance, the appraiser is limited to appraising three specific properties per temporary certificate or license, unless the property to be appraised is part of a Federally-related transaction.

Subchapter 4, which establishes a voluntary trainee program, continues to impose compliance requirements upon trainees and their supervising appraisers. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.3, which sets forth the educational requirements, imposes compliance requirements upon trainees since trainees must complete, by the time the application is submitted to the Board, the educational requirements for a trainee as established in "The Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria and Interpretation of the Criteria" as promulgated by the AQB of the Appraisal Foundation. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.4 imposes a compliance requirement upon trainees since it provides that a trainee must renew his or her permit every year, with a maximum total of three times. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.5 imposes compliance, reporting and recordkeeping requirements for trainees since the rule establishes that trainees must work under the direct supervision of a supervising appraiser, who must be licensed or certified and in good standing. A trainee must inform the Board in the event the supervising appraiser ceases to agree to perform the responsibilities of a supervising appraiser or in the event that any individual not previously designated as a supervising appraiser agrees to supervise the work product of the trainee. A trainee must maintain and submit, upon renewal, a log, the specific requirements of which are indicated in N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.7, and must ensure that the log is available at all times for inspection by the Board. In addition, the trainee must carry his or her permit when performing appraisal assignments. If the supervising appraiser can no longer provide direct supervision to a trainee, the trainee must return the permit within 30 days to the Board. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.6 establishes the responsibilities of a supervising appraiser. This rule imposes compliance, recordkeeping and reporting requirements upon the supervising appraiser. A supervising appraiser must acknowledge in writing to the Board that he or she agrees to perform all responsibilities, such as directly supervising the trainee, must sign and put his or her license or certification number on the trainee log at least once a month, provide the trainee with a copy of any final appraisal report in which the trainee's work product has been utilized or in which the trainee made a professional contribution, and immediately notify the Board and his or her trainee, in writing, in the event that he or she ceases to perform or is unable to perform the responsibilities of a supervising appraiser. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-4.8 establishes the continuing education requirements that a trainee holding a trainee permit for more than two years must comply with by the time the application is submitted to the Board, during the third and fourth years that the trainee permit is held. The continuing education requirements are set forth in "The Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria and Interpretation of the Criteria" as promulgated by the AQB of the Appraisal Foundation.

Subchapter 5, continuing professional education, imposes compliance and reporting requirements upon trainees who hold a trainee permit for more than two years, licensees and certificate holders. A licensed or certified real estate appraiser must confirm on the renewal application that he or she has completed all continuing education requirements. Each licensee or certificate holder must comply with the continuing education requirements as set forth in "The Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria and Interpretation of the Criteria" as promulgated by the AQB of the Appraisal Foundation. Pursuant to N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.4, all real estate appraisers are required to attend a minimum seven-hour length course on USPAP every two years. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.8 imposes a recordkeeping requirement since all real estate appraisers must retain the documentation of the continuing education hours that he or she completed in order to verify program attendance and completion. This rule also imposes a compliance requirement since each licensee or certificate holder must submit such documentation to the Board upon request. N.J.A.C. 13:40A-5.9 imposes compliance and reporting requirements upon continuing education providers. Each provider must submit information on forms provided by the Board for each course for which an approval is sought Additionally, all continuing education courses must be taught in public facilities. Subchapter 6 imposes compliance requirements upon all appraisers because all appraisers must comply with the provisions of USPAP.

Subchapter 7, which establishes the general provisions for all appraisers, imposes compliance and reporting requirements. More specifically, all appraisers must disclose their title and license or certificate number on all appraisal reports. Proposed new rule N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.4 imposes compliance requirements because it requires an applicant seeking approval to instruct qualifying education courses, other than those who teach at colleges, universities, community colleges or junior colleges accredited by the Commission on Higher Education or any real estate appraisal or real estate related organizations that are members of the Appraisal Foundation, to satisfy at least one of the requirements established in this rule. This rule imposes additional compliance requirements because it requires that each instructor submit an application for re-approval every two years. The rule minimizes adverse economic impact on small businesses by imposing the minimum level of prerequisites to become qualified and proficient as a real estate appraisal instructor. Pursuant to N.J.A.C. 13:40A-7.6, licensees and certificate holders must renew their licenses or certificates biennially on a form provided by the Board.

Subchapter 8 allows for certification or licensure by endorsement, which will permit appraisers from other states to work in limited situations in New Jersey. The requirements of endorsement are that the individual must come from a state in which the standards for licensure or certification meet or exceed AQB guidelines, undergo a criminal history background check and complete New Jersey's continuing education requirements.

There are no further compliance requirements, and no additional professional services are necessary to comply with the rules in this chapter. The costs of the recordkeeping and compliance requirements discussed above, may be found in the Economic Impact above. Because the rules further the welfare of the citizens of the State, the rules will be applied uniformly to all real estate appraiser licensees and no differing compliance requirements are provided based on size of the business.

Smart Growth Impact

The Board does not anticipate that the rules proposed for readoption with amendments will have any impact on the achievement of smart growth or upon the implementation of the State Development and Redevelopment Plan, otherwise knows as the State Plan.

Full text of the rules proposed for readoption may be found in the New Jersey Administrative Code at N.J.A.C. 13:40A.
