Nebraska Revised Statute 76-2220

Chapter 76 Section 2220

76-2220.

Proper credentialing required; violation of act; cease and desist order.

(1) Except as provided in section 76-2221, it shall be unlawful for anyone to act as a real property appraiser or real property associate in this state without first obtaining proper credentialing as required under the Real Property Appraiser Act.

(2) Except as provided in section 76-2221, any person who, directly or indirectly for another, offers, attempts, or agrees to perform any act described in section 76-2216 shall be deemed a real property appraiser and any person who, directly or indirectly for another, offers, attempts, or agrees to perform any act described in section 76-2216.01 shall be deemed a real property associate, within the meaning of the Real Property Appraiser Act, and such action shall constitute sufficient contact with this state for the exercise of personal jurisdiction over such person in any action arising out of such act. Committing a single act described in such sections by a person required to be credentialed under the Real Property Appraiser Act and not so credentialed shall constitute a violation of the act for which the board may impose sanctions pursuant to this section for the protection of the public health, safety, or welfare.

(3) The board may issue a cease and desist order against any person who violates this section by performing any action described in section 76-2216 or 76-2216.01 without the appropriate credential. Such order shall be final ten days after issuance unless such person requests a hearing pursuant to section 76-2240. The board may, through the Attorney General, obtain an order from the district court for the enforcement of the cease and desist order.
