COMPLAINT FORM INSTRUCTIONS
WHAT WE CAN DO
The Bureau of Real Estate Appraisers (BREA) will investigate if there has been unlawful or unprofessional conduct by an Appraiser or Appraisal Management Company (AMC). Since a variety of factors impact the order in which the complaints are reviewed and investigated, we are unable to estimate how long this process may take. Receipt of your complaint will be acknowledged in writing, and you will be notified when BREA has closed the case associated with your complaint. We will make every effort to keep your identity confidential. However, proper prosecution may require your testimony in administrative or other legal proceedings that require you to appear as a witness subject to cross-examination.
WHAT WE CANNOT DO
We cannot order the refund of monies, award damages, or enforce contracts. We cannot give legal advice or act as your attorney. We cannot act as a court of law.
