TALCB Announces Extension For All License Holders Affected By Hurricane Harvey

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the Texas Real Estate Commission and the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (the Agency) extended all deadlines for two months for all license holders and applicants statewide with license expiration or application deadlines in August and September. This extension ended on October 31, 2017.

Renew Your Licensed Residential Appraiser

As a Licensed Residential Appraiser, you must renew your license every two years. A renewal notice will be sent about 90 days before your expiration date.   As part of the renewal process, you must complete certain continuing education courses to help improve your ability to deliver the highest possible quality of appraisal work. These continuing education courses are also designed to keep you informed of current developments in the appraisal field.

How can I determine whether my appraisal experience qualifies as acceptable real estate appraisal experience hours?

TALCB does not preview whether or not your real estate appraisal experience will qualify as acceptable experience hours for a particular license. You can review Texas Occupations Code (Chapter 1103, Subchapter E, Sections 1103.201-1103.213) and TALCB rules (22 Tex. Admin. Code §153.15) to assist you determining the adequacy of an appraisal or appraisal report. You can also have your work previewed by another appraiser, mentor or USPAP instructor.
