55-1809. Notice of filing — Registration — rejection of application — Fees. (1) Upon receipt of the application for registration in proper form and of a base registration fee of two hundred fifty dollars ($250), the commission shall issue a notice of filing to the applicant. In addition to the base registration fee, the following fees are payable prior to issuance of an order of registration; five dollars ($5.00) per lot, parcel, unit or interest numbering fifty (50) to two hundred fifty (250); four dollars ($4.00) per lot, parcel, unit or interest numbering two hundred fifty-one (251) to five hundred (500); three dollars ($3.00) per lot, parcel, unit or interest numbering five hundred one (501) to seven hundred fifty (750); and two dollars and fifty cents ($2.50) for each lot, parcel, unit or interest numbering in excess of seven hundred fifty (750). The application and registration fees shall not exceed a maximum fee of three thousand dollars ($3,000).
(2) If an applicant submits the required filings using the web-based document management system sponsored by the association of real estate license law officials, the fees prescribed in this section, including the maximum fee, shall be reduced by twenty-five percent (25%). The reduction does not apply to late fees. The commission may promulgate rules changing or eliminating the fee reduction.
(3) Within ninety (90) days from the date of the notice of filing, the commission shall enter an order registering the subdivided lands or rejecting the registration. If no order of rejection is entered within ninety (90) days from the date of notice of filing, the land shall be deemed registered unless the applicant has consented in writing to a delay.
(4) If the commission determines that the requirements of sections 55-1806 through 55-1808, Idaho Code, have been met, it shall enter an order registering the subdivided lands and shall designate the form of the public offering statement.
(5) If the commission determines that any of the requirements of sections 55-1806 through 55-1808, Idaho Code, have not been met, the commission shall notify the applicant that the application for registration must be corrected in the particulars specified within ten (10) days or within the time otherwise allowed by the commission. If the requirements are not met within the time allowed, the commission shall enter an order rejecting the registration which shall state the basis for the rejection and advise the applicant of his right to request a hearing before the commission. The order rejecting the registration shall not become effective for twenty (20) days after service of the order, during which time the applicant may make a written request for a hearing. If a hearing is not timely requested, the order shall become the final agency action subject to judicial review under chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code.
(6) Registration under this chapter shall be effective as of the date of the registration order for a period of one (1) year and may be renewed for additional periods of one (1) year by filing, not later than fifteen (15) days prior to the expiration of a registration, a renewal application in such form and containing such information as the commission shall prescribe, including the renewal report provided in section 55-1810, Idaho Code, together with the payment of a base renewal fee of two hundred fifty dollars ($250), plus one dollar ($1.00) for each lot, parcel, unit or interest. The total fees for a timely renewal application shall not exceed a maximum fee of three thousand dollars ($3,000). A late renewal fee of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) per day will be charged for each day the renewal application is late, with a maximum late fee of five hundred dollars ($500). A registration that is not renewed within twenty (20) days of expiration shall be deemed canceled and may not thereafter be renewed under the provisions of this section. Each amendment to the original registration requires a twenty-five dollar ($25.00) fee. The initial registration and any renewal fees may not be returned or refunded for any reason.
(7) All fees collected by the commission under this chapter shall be deposited at least monthly with the state treasurer and said funds so deposited shall be deposited to the credit of the special real estate fund. All funds so deposited are hereby appropriated to the commission for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this chapter. All expenditures from said fund by the commission under the provisions of this chapter shall be paid out on warrants drawn by the state controller upon presentation of proper vouchers approved by the commission. Such claims and supporting vouchers shall be examined by the state board of examiners in the same manner as other claims against the state of Idaho. For the purpose of carrying out the objects of this chapter and in the exercise of the powers herein granted, the commission shall have powers to make orders concerning the disbursement of the moneys in said special real estate fund, including the payment of compensation and expenses of its members, clerks and employees and for the payment of printing and for such other expenses as deemed necessary.
(8) The fact that an application for registration and public offering statement have been filed, or the fact that an order of registration has been issued, does not constitute a finding by the commission that any document is true, complete and not misleading, nor does either fact mean that the commission has determined in any way the merits, qualifications of or given its approval or recommendation to any person or subdivision. It is unlawful for any person to make, or cause to be made, to any prospective purchaser any representation inconsistent with the provisions of this subsection.
