2012 Florida Statutes
559.730 Administrative remedies.—
(1) The office may impose an administrative fine against, or revoke or suspend the registration of, a registrant under this part who has committed a violation of s. 559.72. Final action to fine, suspend, or revoke the registration of a registrant is subject to review in accordance with chapter 120.
(2) The office may impose suspension rather than revocation of a registration if circumstances warrant that one or the other should be imposed and the registrant demonstrates that the registrant has taken affirmative steps that can be expected to effectively eliminate the violations and that the registrant’s registration has never been previously suspended.
(3) In addition to, or in lieu of suspension or revocation of a registration, the office may impose an administrative fine of up to $10,000 per violation against a registrant for violations of s. 559.72. The Financial Services Commission shall adopt rules establishing guidelines for imposing administrative penalties.
(4) This part does not preclude any person from pursuing remedies available under the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act for any violation of such act.
