http://www.RowlettRealEstateSchool.com | 850-547-1333 | Questions about Florida DBPR? We're Florida specialists! Contact us today! The Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) is the agency charged with licensing and regulating businesses and professionals in Florida. It is the intent of the Florida Legislature that individuals desiring to engage in a licensed profession be allowed to do so. Regulation of the real estate industry is necessary to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public (consumer protection), however, the Legislature has mandated that it does not want extraordinary or unreasonable restrictions created that would deter qualified persons from entering their chosen profession. The Legislature believes professions under the DBPR should be regulated when: • the unregulated practice can harm the public, the potential harm is recognizable, and the danger outweighs any anticompetitive impact that might result from regulation; • the public is not adequately protected by other state statutes, local ordinances, or federal laws; or • less restrictive means of regulation are not available. The DBPR is under the executive branch of the governor, and it is governed by Chapter 120, F.S. The agency is structured according to the requirements of Chapter 20.165, F.S. The Legislature, under Chapter 455, F.S., granted authority to the DBPR to investigate consumer complaints, issue subpoenas when conducting investigations, issue cease and desist orders to unlicensed individuals, and issue citations to individuals licensed by the DBPR. The chief administrator of the DBPR is the secretary of the DBPR, who is appointed by the governor, subject to confirmation by the state senate. The main DBPR office is located in Tallahassee, Florida. The divisions under the Department of Business and Professional Regulation that are most relevant to real estate are presented in the following paragraphs.

HEADLINE: Something 'fishy' about popular pedicure? CAPTION: A trendy pedicure with fish that nibble dead skin from the feet has been nipped in the bud. The Florida Board of Cosmetology has banned the procedure, even before it was known to be offered anywhere in the state. (Feb. 23) [Notes:ANCHOR VOICE] In Florida, state regulators are putting their foot down on this trendy type of pedicure. The treatment, which is popular in Asia, involves a client sticking their feet in a bowl of water. Then small fish, usually carp, nibble dead skin from the feet. But the Florida Board of Cosmetology decided to ban the procedure-- even before it was known to be offered anywhere in the state. SOT: "There are two standing rules that the fish pedicures violate. Animals and pets are prohibited in cosmetology salons and the pedicure sanitation requirements." Alexis Antonacci/ Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation Florida isn't the only state that has decided to ban the fish pedicures. Texas, Washington, Massachusetts and New Hampshire have also outlawed the practice.

Step 1. Filing The Complaint
 
02:01
The complaint process begins when a complaint (an alleged violation of a law or rule) is filed with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR). Any complaint that is filed in writing and is legally sufficient will be investigated. A complaint is legally sufficient if it contains facts indicating that a violation of any of the following has occurred: ■Florida statute ■Any existing, legally adopted DBPR rule ■Any existing, legally adopted FREC rule Anyone may file a complaint against a licensee, an applicant, or an unlicensed person for actions believed to be in violation of Chapter 475, F.S. The alleged violation(s) need not pertain to real estate transactions and need not have taken place in Florida. A Uniform Complaint Form is available from the DBPR. The DBPR is required by law to periodically notify the person who files a complaint of the status of the investigation, whether probable cause was found, and the status of any civil action or administrative proceeding, or appeal. The DBPR may investigate an anonymous complaint or one made by a confidential informant if the complaint is in writing and is legally sufficient; if the alleged violation of law or rules is substantial; and if the DBPR has reason to believe, after preliminary inquiry, that the alleged violations in the complaint are true. You can download the Uniform Complaint Form and instructions at www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/re/documents/re-2200-1.pdf. Consumers may also file a complaint online. Go to www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/ and select “File a Complaint.”
Florida NewsMakers: Secretary of the State Department of Business & Regulation, Ken Lawson
 
04:56
On this week's "Florida NewsMakers" program Ken Lawson, Secretary of the state Department of Business and Professional Regulation, sits down with Sachs Media Group's Alia Faraj-Johnson. Their discussion highlights Lawson's efforts to streamline licensing and regulatory processes to help boost Florida's economy. With more than 1 million licensees, Lawson's agency oversees a wide range of professions and occupations, from engineers to cosmetologists to mixed martial arts trainers. "Over the last several years, what we are proud that as a department, we reduced the timing it takes for a person to get a professional license," Lawson tells Faraj-Johnson. "Back in 2008 it took 41 days on average for someone to get their license. But now with technology and my people's hard work, it takes less than two days." The agency also plays a key role in food safety by regulating restaurants and the increasingly popular food trucks. "We've got over 2,300 different food trucks in the state of Florida," Lawson says, and "they have to be regulated the same way as regular restaurants, follow the same rules, same health and safety concerns." Lawson also addresses efforts to curb underage drinking, unlicensed contractors and more on "Florida NewsMakers."

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ A community association manager is a manager of a condominium or homeowners association (including single-family home subdivisions, townhouses, or mixed-use development). The position is frequently confused with a property manager, who deals with individual rental units or a group of rental units, like an apartment complex. The community manager deals with property owners and homeowners. People with this position are also sometimes called community managers, which is distinct from online community managers. The state of Florida requires community association managers to hold a license. Performing duties as a CAM without a license is a violation of Florida Statutes. A link to the Department of Professional and Business Regulation, as well as a Frequently Asked Question PDF file, is included in the Reference section below. Organizations like the Community Associations Institute offer rigorous courses for professional managers to obtain their certification. The Community Association Managers International Certification Board's (CAMICB) (A different organization) provides internationally accredited certifications. Some common certifications include Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) offered through the CAMICB, Association Management Specialist (AMS), and Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM). Being able to find a professional management company is an important task for many board members.

State Licensing Tips (Permit Pro Tips)  | 305-300-0364
 
00:58
In this episode of "Permit Pro Tips" we are going to discuss State Licensing. For a number of professions and industries and facilities in the State of Florida, their licensing is regulated by the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation, the Florida Department of Agriculture, or the Florida Department of Health. It is important to figure out which licensing body regulates your profession or business and apply as soon as possible because the review process could take several months. In addition to the state license, you will also need a city and county Business Tax Receipt that your business is located in. Please see our video with the title "Business License Tips" for more on the city review process. If you need further help please call us for a FREE Consultation at 305-300-0364. All City Permits is a full service permit expediter servicing all cities in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. We are working hard to expand our service coverage to cities outside of South Florida and establishing satellite locations through out the State of Florida.

What happens if someone files a complaint about my business with the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation? | Dilla Employment Law, P.A. | Amie Dilla - Attorney at Law | http://www.dillaemploymentlaw.com/ | 727-248-6624 | 28870 US Hwy 19 North, Suite 300, Clearwater, Florida 33761 | 12553 New Brittany Blvd., Bldg 32, Fort Myers, Florida 33907 If someone files a complaint about your business the first thing that will occur is the department will initiate an investigation. You'll be notified of the investigation and provided an opportunity to respond. After that point, probable cause might be found. If probable cause is found, an administrative complaint will be filed against your license. This administrative complaint remains public record, and as a result of that complaint, the board may impose discipline ranging from fines to revocation of your license. Therefore, if you find yourself in this situation, I recommend contacting an attorney experienced with administrative procedure to assist you with this process and make sure that your needs are being met.

During a three-day operation in mid-April, a multi-agency undercover sting was conducted focusing in on unlicensed contractors. Those agencies that played a vital role in the successful operation include the Lakeland Police Department, State Attorney’s Office 10th Judicial Circuit, The Florida Department of Financial Services Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Compliance, and the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Eight individuals advertised their ability to perform wide-ranging plumbing and electrical work without proper licenses or training. All but one had no worker’s compensation coverage to protect their employees in the event of an accident or injury.

Operation Retrofit Nets Multiple Arrests with More Charges Pending What: HCSO Construction Fraud Unit Targets Unlicensed Contractors When: October 10, 2018 - October 19, 2018 Sting Location: Hillsborough County - Sun City Center The Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister will not stand for scam artists targeting our elderly population and Operation Retrofit, headed up by the HCSO Construction Fraud Unit, is proof of just that. Through intense investigative work, undercover detectives used a residential home on loan to HCSO in Sun City Center to catch unlicensed contractors preying on the roughly 25,000 senior citizens in the area. During the nine day sting, detectives responded to advertisements from known or suspected unlicensed contractors and posed as the homeowner to seek estimates on a variety of projects. Time after time, unlicensed contractors broke the law and provided quotes without proper licensing. "One of these suspects traveled to our area specifically to target the elderly of Hillsborough County. It's despicable and we won't tolerate it. Shoddy work puts people's safety at risk. The consequences of poor construction or electrical work could be deadly," Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said. Operation Retrofit netted 16 arrests, with charges pending for 6 additional individuals. Bogus estimates totaling $117,312.25 were provided to HCSO undercover detectives. "Everyone likes to save money, but you can't be fooled by these scam artists. The savings aren't worth the risk. Protect yourself, your family and your home by always hiring a licensed contractor," Sheriff Chad Chronister said. 4 arrests of particular interest: James Edwards Hanko, DOB 9/10/65 - He was arrested for unlicensed contracting after he offered to remodel a bathroom, paint and tile the residence in exchange for approximately $2,200. During the course of our investigation, he admitted he'd been a fugitive for the past 7 years. Hanko has active warrants out of Wisconsin for a parole violation, larceny theft from a business, 4th degree sexual assault and lewd and lascivious behavior. Reynaldo Garcia, DOB 11/17/54 - During Operation Retrofit, Garcia offered to paint the home for approximately $1,600. He was arrested for unlicensed contracting at which time he was found to be in possession of marijuana. He is a repeat offender and facing unlicensed contracting charges in a 2017 open case. Darin Butts, DOB 6/27/61 - Not only was Butts arrested for unlicensed contracting after offering to replace a water heater and move electrical outlets for $270, he's also a registered sex offender. He frequents the Sun City Center area and advertises as a handyman on his vehicle. Donald Edward Tucker, DOB 3/30/63 - Tucker is a repeat offender and has previously been investigated by the HCSO Construction Fraud Unit. His license is listed as null and void by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation with an expiration date of August 31, 2010. During Operation Retrofit, Tucker contracted to remodel a bathroom, move electrical switches, tile the home and paint the interior in exchange for $11,050. Tucker was arrested and charged with unlicensed contracting, which is a felony as a second offense. The Hillsborough County Construction Fraud Unit has conducted 6 stings since its inception in 2013. The unit has investigated more than $2.5 million in bogus estimates from unlicensed contractors, ultimately saving victims from the hefty financial toll. As part of HCSO's commitment to education and awareness on this particular topic, Sheriff Chad Chronister and the Construction Fraud Unit hold yearly seminars educating senior citizens and all residents about the dangers of working with an unlicensed contractor and how to recognize the warning signs. The next seminar is scheduled for spring of 2019 and more details will be released at that time. Beware of: Door-to-door sales or internet offers for home improvement which seem to offer unrealistic savings Contractors who ask for large amounts of money up front, especially cash Contractors who ask the homeowner to obtain their own permits Contractors who claim work can be done without permits Contractors who will not show you their contractor's license and insurance documents

A Look into Florida’s Gaming Laws | Michael Howard Wolf Law Firm
 
06:06
SO, WHAT EXACTLY DOES FLORIDA GAMING LAW ENCOMPASS? Gaming Law in Florida can encompass both regulated and unregulated gaming facilities. WHAT DO REGULATED FACILITIES INCLUDE? Regulated facilities include pari-mutuels (horse racing, Jai alai, and, until recently, dog racing). Pari-mutuel facilities in Miami-Dade County and Broward County can operate slot machines and card rooms, under the support of the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (FDBPR). ARE THE FACILITIES THAT ARE OWNED BY THE INDIANS REGULATED? The Indians’ facilities are not regulated but are constrained by a “compact” between the state of Florida and the tribes. All Indian facilities are locally owned by the Indians under Federal Law, and, as such, are not subject to state laws, other than those they choose to follow. Under federal law, the Indians can offer gaming otherwise legal in the state. For example, state law allows pari-mutuels to operate slot machines. Likewise, charitable bingo is authorized by the Florida Statute, though it is lawful for the Indians to offer bingo. THANKS FOR THAT, BUT WHAT THE HECK ARE “UNREGULATED” GAMING FACILITIES? Unregulated gaming facilities are sometimes described as “grey-area gaming”, meaning that these unregulated facilities operate in a grey area as for the legality of their operations. The law has worked to the point, now that it has been made clear by the Florida Legislative, what type of “amusements” are permissible. HEY MICHAEL! YOU THINK YOU CAN EXPLAIN THIS “GREY AREA” THING A LITTLE MORE? YOU KNOW, FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT. Prior to 2013, Florida had an “arcade amusement” law, which had been enacted in 1984 to allow for amusement centers like Chuck E Cheese and Dave and Busters (https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article1952948.html). These facilities operate games where a player can collect points on a ticket, which can be exchanged for merchandise. Prior to 2013, the requirement was that the machines had to be subject to an application of skill. Redemption was limited to 75 cents on any game played, and redemption had to be with merchandise, not cash. The “grey area” term reflected the various interpretations by law enforcement officials and the courts. The language was definitely open to interpretation. WHAT NEW IDEAS DID PROPERTIES, VENDING COMPANIES, AND GAMING SOFTWARE MANUFACTURERS COME UP WITH AFTER LEGISLATIVE ACTIONS? Because the properties, vending companies, and gaming software manufacturers had great imaginations, new forms of “grey area” gaming cropped up. The most noteworthy form was the sweepstakes concept. This business operated as an internet café, terminology typically used for a place of business where people can purchase internet time along with refreshments. However, the new internet café concept was one where a person could purchase internet time and receive sweepstakes entries based on the amount of his or her internet time purchase. The sweepstakes entries could then be opened by playing slot-like games. The fact that somebody could determine the result of sweepstakes entries, whereas use of the slot-like games was the trick which was used to claim that the activity fell within the purview of Florida Games Promotion Statute, which allowed sweepstakes in connection with sale of consumer products and services. As usual, however, the concept was expanded to the point where these internet cafes were considered mini casinos. WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST CASE IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA REGARDING GREY-AREA GAMING? In 2013, an organization called Allied Veterans owned at least 60 sweepstakes rooms across the state. The organization, its officers, and its attorney were charged with crimes ranging from possession of illegal game machines to operating a gambling house to conspiracy to violate Florida Gambling Crimes Chapter. AND WHAT HAPPENED BECAUSE OF THIS? Because of these allegations, the Florida Legislative overhauled Florida’s amusement games laws by outlawing sweepstakes and moving the arcade amusement laws out of the Gambling Crimes Chapter. They created the Florida Family Amusement Law, which defines amusement devices, provides the rules for redemption, and classifies different types of machines, which may be used lawfully. Despite this new legislation in 2015, Sweepstakes, arcades, and other forms of grey area gambling have remained. We hope this was extremely informative for you!

Hillsborough County, FLConstruction plays such a crucial role in Florida and it is a strongly regulated industry. According to the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR), the state of Florida has mandated the implementation of a building code, based on a national model, and amended to meet certain specifications such as hurricane protections. The Florida Building Code requires a person(s) involved in building, improving, and/or demolition of a public or private building or structure to first obtain the corresponding contractor license for the scope of the work to be completed. Because of the inherent financial and personal liabilities involved in construction, a contractor must demonstrate their training and proficiency in the trade(s) for which the license(s) is sought, financial stability and credit worthiness, and a successful completion of a criminal history investigation. While DBPR only regulates the major construction trades, the Hillsborough County Building Board requires licensing for all facets of construction and issues a specialty contractor's license which covers minor trades such as painting, flooring, and drywall. Local contractor's licenses maintain the same issuance requirements as those at the state level. Unlicensed contractors can be appealing to consumers as they can offer services at a lesser cost. The unlicensed contractor is not regulated, their work and the materials used may be substandard, they provide no warranty, and the work is done without the required permits and inspections. These scenarios can cause costly repairs, code violations, and other liabilities. In response to this issues, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Construction Fraud Unit was created to proactively investigate issues related to unlicensed contracting in violation of Florida Statute 489 and Hillsborough County Ordinance 15-14. Between June 2017 and August 2017, unit detectives initiated "Operation Rebuild." The purpose of this targeted operation was to identify unlicensed contractors by employing an extended covert investigation. Partnered with the State Attorney's Office, Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Florida Department of Financial Services, and the Hillsborough County Building Department, investigations were conducted throughout Hillsborough County. Case detectives gathered information from multiple open sources regularly used by homeowners to contact contractors and "handy man" services. These sources included: Angie's List, Home Adviser, Facebook, Craig's List, and various citizen complaints. Unit detectives located and contacted 310 potential unlicensed contractors. These subjects were gathered from all of the listed sources. Of the 310 subjects contacted, 114 returned calls for quotes and met with the detectives. Of those subjects, 73 criminal cases were filed for fraud and unlicensed contracting. Unit detectives received written quotes from the 73 subjects totaling $1,946,882.40. Historically, the quality of unlicensed workmanship would need to be repaired and is generally more expensive to repair than if the work was originally completed by a licensed contractor. Therefore, the potential economic impact to Hillsborough County homeowners and legitimate contractors would be in excess of four million dollars. Unit detectives also initiated "Operation Swift Wind," which targeted unlicensed contractors conducting business during a state of emergency, which was declared on September 4, 2017, by Governor Scott in response to the threats posed by Hurricane Irma. In an abbreviated operation lasting for three days in late October, unit detectives contacted ten potential unlicensed contractors, resulting in five arrests for felony charges.

Operation Freelancer III Nabs 9 Unlicensed Contractors
 
01:36
The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office arrested nine people on multiple charges during Operation Freelancer III, an investigation to protect citizens from unlicensed contractors. Detectives worked with the Sarasota County Building Department, the Florida Department of Financial Services Division of Insurance Fraud and the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) to contact individuals advertising home repair services that require a license to complete. As subjects arrived at the target residence, the DBPR database was checked to determine if they were licensed, registered as a contractor, and/or had the required workers compensation coverage or exemption to perform the work they proposed to do. In all, the operation resulted in nine felony charges and 14 misdemeanor charges. Those arrested have a combined history of 91 prior felony charges and 32 convictions. One of the defendants, Charles Duff, has an extensive criminal history including a conviction for Armed Robbery in 2006 where he entered a bank claiming to be armed with explosives. Another defendant of note is Eric Larson, who was arrested for the second time while trying to contract without a license.

During a recent undercover sting, detectives and investigators arrested five men who posed as licensed electricians on the internet. The detectives contacted each of the suspects through online advertisements and requested estimates on various repair jobs. Police officers took the suspects into custody after each arrived at the operation location to provide work estimates. James Maynard and David Greenberg were booked into Orient Road Jail for violating the terms of their probation. The other three suspects received notices to appear in court and were released at the scene. Investigators with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation issued civil notices to cease and desist to all five suspects. The Department also issued civil fines to the individuals. Unlicensed activity is not only unregulated, it is against the law. Floridians can help protect the jobs of licensed professionals and the safety of consumers by notifying the Department of Business and Professional Regulation of any suspected unlicensed activity. Complaints can be emailed to [email protected] or reported by phone to 1-866-532-1440. Additionally, the most effective way to stop unlicensed activity is to only hire licensed Florida professionals.
