You are an AMC if you perform any of the following:
Submit the following:
The registration term is January 1 through December 31 of each year.
Submit the following between October 1 and November 15 of each year:
The renewal application will be mailed to all registered appraisal management companies on or around October 1 of each year.
For the 2016 renewal, the surety bond's effective dates must be from Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 31, 2017 or "continuous." If the ending date of the surety bond is "continuous," proof of continuation of the bond must be submitted for subsequent renewals.
AMC registration numbers change upon each renewal. The last four digits represent the year that your registration is active. For instance, the registration number AMC-SD-0000-2016 becomes AMC-SD-0000-2017 upon the 2016 renewal of your registration.
An appraisal management company may renew the registration at any time prior to three months after its date of expiration; however, there is a late renewal penalty fee of $50.00 for each month or fraction of a month that has passed since the first day of January.
The Appraiser Certification Program must be notified, in writing, within five days of a change of address, designated officer or controlling person.
