Petitioner George W. Dodd 
Petitioner's Request

Amend the Real Estate Appraiser regulations to require providers of electronic portals to cease doing business in Virginia until such time as they provide the Board with sufficient evidence and documentation that ensures the integrity and unadulterated transmission of appraisal reports from the appraiser to the client and/or end user of the appraisal report.

The Board will receive public comment on the petition for rulemaking from March 31, 2008, through April 21, 2008.  At the first Board meeting following the end of the comment period, the Board will review a summary of all comments received and make a decision to grant or deny the petition request.

Agency Decision Summary

The Board voted to deny the petition since the Board was advised by legal counsel that the Board does not have the authority to require providers of electronic portals to cease doing business in Virginia until such time as they provide the Board with sufficient evidence and documentation that ensures the integrity and unadulterated transmission of appraisal reports from the appraiser to the client and/or end user of the appraisal report.
