Revised licensing procedures for Illinois real estate appraisers

The IDFPR will now require applicants for real estate appraisal licensure to submit to criminal background check

-will consider factors such as whether a past crime was one of armed violence or moral turpitude, whether crime relates to the real estate profession, and whether ten years have passed since the applicant completed his/her imposed sentence

-DFPR will also take into account whether the applicant has been sufficiently rehabilitated to warrant licensure, which can be determined by considering whether applicant completed probation or parole, or whether ten years have passed since the end of the imposed sentence without any subsequent convictions.

-even if an applicant has created a presumption of rehabilitation, other factors can outweigh that presumption, such as non-compliance with the applicant’s terms of punishment, unwillingness to cooperate with medical or phsyciatric treatment or counseling, falsification of information in an application for licensure, failure to provide the DFPR with more info when requested, or failure to appear for a meeting with teh DFPR in connection with the applicant’s application for licensure

-DFPR will NOT consider juvenile convictions, arrests that did not result in convictions, or convictions that have been overturned, pardoned or expunged when determining an applicant’s fitness for licensure

-If DFPR determines that an applicant is unfut for licensure, they will send the applicant a notice, and the applicant can then submit a written request for hearing to contest the determination of unfitness

DFPR also amended real estate appraiser training standards

-applicants must now complete the 3 hour ILST-15-AQB Outline Supervisor-Trainee Course or the 6 hour ILST-15-Supervisor-Trainee Course, if applicant only completes the 3 hour course, he or she will then have one year to complete either an Illinois specific course or the full 6-hour course

-new educational requirements: 2,500 hours of AQB appraisal experience to be spread out over at least two years of USPAP compliant work

-bachelor’s degree now required rather than an associate’s degree, and degree can no longer come from a junior college

-applicants for Associate Real Estate Trainee Appraiser License are required to complete 75 hours of qualifying classroom education, which must be completed within five years of the initial date of application

-licensed real estate appraisers are now permitted to make comments based on observations in an appraisal report with respect to a condition that would affect the property’s value, but not permitted to make such comments for compensation
