The rationale for the easy peasy process was that Certified appraisers should be able to understand assignment conditions which are readily available.

I wonder if by letting those at the Licensed level to apply will have to take the more difficult process from the early 2000's.

estimated at an average of 12 minutes to review the instructions, find the information, and complete this form. This agencies cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless a valid

Appraisers: The application is to be submitted to HUD only after the appraiser is State licensed or certified with credentials based on the minimum licensing/ certification criteria issued by the

Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) of the Appraisal Foundation.
This appears to conflict with the current Eligibility Requirements on the HUD website, which state;

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR APPRAISER ROSTER
"To be eligible as a new applicant or to be eligible for reinstatement, you must:

1. Be a state-certified appraiser with credentials based on the minimum certification criteria issued by the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) of the Appraisal Foundation..."

And also the following;

FHA APPRAISER ROSTER APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
"FHA requires that your appraisal credentials meet or exceed the minimum criteria for a Certified General or Certified Residential appraiser issued by the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) of the Appraisal Foundation. You should contact your state appraiser regulatory agency to determine how to become state credentialed and therefore, AQB compliant."

Which is it? Yesterday I called HUD for clarification. I was informed that it is currently Certified Residential or CG. Note that the Application for Roster is dated 5/2008, the Eligibility Requirements say "Effective October 1, 2009, FHA no longer accepts new applications from licensed-level appraisers per the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. ALL roster appraisers must be state certified and must appear on the ASC's National Registry in order to conduct appraisals for FHA insured mortgages.


I will say that I was impressed with the response that I received from HUD. I actually got a call from HUD HQ with regards to my question. Their understanding was that while the legislation passed, the provision regarding licensed appraisers was not included. Their view on the situation is that most of the licensed appraisers went on to get certified. Checking the ASC registry numbers this makes sense; in Virginia there are currently 1,175 Certified General, 1,648 Certified Residential, and 432 Licensed appraisers. Nationally there are 39,366 CG, 47,485 CR, and 7,264 Licensed.

Who knows...

Please do not skip on the requirement to read the 4000.1 and you won't have to come back in here complaining about a stip, or asking dumb questions like way too many so-called FHA appraisers do. It's on line. It is searchable for a key word with Ctrl F and can answer better than a lot of us answer a question.

Regardless of the bantering back and forth, ALL of your insight is invaluable. As a matter of fact if you ALL weren't so competitive and knowledgeable I would never have learned as much as I did on this topic from this single thread. So thank you ALL.
