I've been asked to look at our reciprocity agreements. At this point, I'm not interested in whether we should/shouldn't or why/why not.

All I'm interested in right now is which states no longer issue licenses.

Can anyone tell me if ND, OH or SD issue the Certified Residential?

Thanx,
Oregon Doug

Montana has licenses and also has a trainee license status as well. Montana also approves mentors. A prospective mentor needs approval from the State which consists of submitting reports. It is a system that is working exceptionally well. There are over 450 persons who are licensed and certified and 94 approved mentors.

One item of interest is that in September of 2006, Montana closed down all reciprocity agreements and no longer offers any kind of reciprocity to any state.

Montana will only offer reciprocity to those states that investigate or review actual work product. The Montana Board is only now beginning to consider the idea of working out reciprocity agreements. The key to accepting reciprocity with another state is whether that state reviews work product and does not just accept an experience log. Many states will never be accepted due to the absence of a work product review process.

North Dakota is in the process of installing a Cert Res license. Don't know the exact date when it becomes operational, but they are working on it.

North Dakota is installing Cert Res licensure. I passed the test but the reviewer had a different idea of USPAP compliance than I did so I was shot down.

Illinois issues "Associate" license (not on ASC radar)...then Certified Res & Certified Gen. State licensed went bye-bye when the associate class emerged.

Sounds like Montana has a pretty good system.
As far as I can tell, CA mainly has a system to take your renewal fees. :unsure:

Michigan has Certified Res...and depending on what state, some have reciprocity

The different license levels:
1. Limited Appraiser (trainee license)
2. State Licensed Appraiser
3. Certified Residential Appraiser
4. Certified General Appraiser

Does Montana exempt mineral rights (oil & gas) valuation from their regulation? Most of the really bad mineral reports I have seen originate in states which do not allow geologists or engineers to appraise mineral rights.

Montana is a voluntary state and only requires an appraisal license/certification for FRT's. Otherwise, anyone's grandmother can appraise in Montana. The mineral right valuations you are speaking of in Montana are done by appropriate experts. We have both an oil/gas boom and coal boom going on right now so there are many experts coming into the state. You might have heard about the Bakken Formation in the Williston Basin. It is the largest discovery of onshore oil in 20 years.

In Montana we have a "chicken and cow" law that allows mining companies to put up their patented mining claims as collateral for reclamation bonds. I do the bulk of the appraising of these claims for different mining companies. This has led to many appraisals for private estates. I hasten to add, these claims no longer have any value as mining claims. In some cases, I have to hire a timber cruiser to handle the timber portion of the valuation. I am not an engineer and can only appraise these claims where the HBU does not include mineral valuation. This week I got an order for 25 claims for an estate. Anyone in Montana could appraise these claims for an estate. I just don't know how many would venture out in February on a snowmobile and snow shoes with a GPS to inspect them.

Back in 2003, amendments to the Florida Appraisal Certification statute were passed by the Legislature which limits the registrations/certifications to:

  • Registered Trainee Appraiser
  • Certified Residential Appraiser
  • Certified General Appraiser
Individuals with a "Licensed Appraiser" credential were permitted to retain the status, but no new Licensed Appraiser credentials were issued after July 1, 2003. At that time, there was about 110 License Appraisers in the state. We are down to just under 100 in 2007.
