Federal and California Laws and Regulations – with Real World Relevance

Share :

Taught by Peter Christensen – a California lawyer whose legal work is focused ` valuation services, this course takes a fresh approach to BREA’s required course on federal and California laws and regulations. It offers real world situations and examples to illustrate the laws covered in the course – by, for example, discussing emails offered as evidence in a real case to show alleged violations of appraiser independence requirements. This course also covers important laws relevant to appraising that are missed in other courses – such as the Gramm Leach Bliley Act, RESPA prohibitions relating to appraisal fees, and fair housing laws, including California’s newly enacted appraisal protections.

4 hours CE approved with ASFMRA and BREA.

Instructor: Peter Christensen, Christensen Law
