Each applicant for a license or certification must go through a mandatory experience audit, which involves a review of a random sample of their work product (inclusive of work files). This experience audit is performed to ensure the experience being claimed was performed in compliance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). If the experience audit indicates that an applicant’s work product does not comply with USPAP, the applicant will receive a letter stating that the application is being denied because the work product submitted did not comply with USPAP.
To learn more about your options, contact the TALCB Standards and Enforcement Services and ask to speak to the attorney handling your application denial. Once you receive the letter denying your application, you have 30 days to decide how to proceed and to notify the Standards and Enforcement Services in writing if you wish to appeal the decision denying your application.
