4763.10 Refusal to issue or renew certificate, registration or license.

(A) The superintendent of real estate may refuse to issue a certificate, registration, or license to an applicant based upon any act or omission for which a certificate holder, registrant, or licensee may be disciplined under section 4763.11 of the Revised Code or refuse to renew a certificate, registration, or license of a current certificate holder, registrant, or licensee for failing to comply with this chapter. If the superintendent refuses to issue or renew a certificate, registration, or license, the superintendent shall notify the applicant, certificate holder, registrant, or licensee of the basis for the refusal. Except as provided in division (B) of this section, the notice shall comply with division (B) of section 4763.11 of the Revised Code and the hearing shall be conducted in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code. An applicant, certificate holder, registrant, or licensee may appeal the superintendent's decision to the real estate appraiser board which shall provide the applicant, certificate holder, registrant, or licensee with the opportunity to be heard in person or by counsel, or both. All appeals shall be conducted in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code, except that, notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in Chapter 119. of the Revised Code, an applicant, certificate holder, registrant, or licensee may appeal the decision of the board to any court of common pleas.

(B) The superintendent is not required to afford a hearing to an applicant who is refused a certificate or license because of failure to pass the examination required by section 4763.05 of the Revised Code.
