(a) Filing and contest of a formal complaint. A person who believes an abstractor has violated a provision of the Abstractors law, rules and regulations or Auditor's orders, or who wishes to protest the issuance or renewal of a certificate, license or permit, may invoke the jurisdiction of the Auditor by addressing a verified formal complaint to the Registrar at the Auditor's principle office. The complaint should contain a clear and concise statement of the facts, to include the names, addresses and telephone numbers of persons involved; dates or approximate dates; and sufficient information to reveal the alleged violations of law and the facts on which they are based.
(b) Fees. Before a formal complaint can be accepted and a hearing held a non-refundable filing fee of $150.00 must be paid to the Auditor.
(c) Notice. The Registrar shall mail a copy of a Formal Complaint to the person named as Respondent in the Complaint immediately upon filing of same.
(d) Review. The Registrar shall review the complaint to determine if it contains all elements set forth in part (a) above. If the complaint is lacking sufficient information to reveal the alleged violations, the Registrar shall offer to return the filing fee and attempt an informal resolution to the complaint. If the complaint contains sufficient information to proceed with a formal hearing, the Registrar shall schedule the hearing and will have responsibility for overseeing all proceedings involving the complaint and hearing until its conclusion.
