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.
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. A renewal notice will be sent out about 90 days before your expiration date. You may renew your license up to six months after the expiration date. After six months, you may apply for reinstatement of your license.
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.
A Licensed Residential Appraiser is a person who is licensed by TALCB and has met the educational, experience, and examination requirements for licensing. The scope of work includes appraisal of non-complex residential 1-4 unit properties with a transactional value less than $1,000,000 as well the authority to complete complex federally related transactions (FRT) and non FRT transactions with a value less than 250K.
