Texas Appraisal Board

Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board (TALCB) came into being following an act passed by the state legislature in 1991. The purpose of establishment of such a board was to have a state agency for proper licensure and regulation of Texas real estate appraisers. Besides, the board was also made the chief agency to enforce state and federal laws in the realm of appraisal practices across the state of Texas. Moreover, the Texas Appraisal Board was also vested with such powers as to take disciplinary actions against those Texas appraisers who are not abiding by the rules and standards of appraisal practices.

Thus, it has now become essential for Texas real estate appraisers to obtain proper licenses or certificates from the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board, just as real estate agents or brokers need licenses from Texas Real Estate Commission before commencing their professional careers in their respective real estate arenas. While offering licenses to interested persons, the Texas Appraisal Licensing Board tests thoroughly the abilities and credentials of the applying candidates and selects only those meeting the standards it has set. The minimum educational qualifications and experience requirements are based on the recommendations made by the Appraisal Qualifications Board. Besides, the applicants are also expected to have completed the courses approved by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.

Texas Appraisers License

The Texas Real Estate Appraisal Board has five classifications of appraiser licensure and certification. These are Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser, Certified General Real Estate Appraiser, Provisional Licensed Real Estate Appraiser, State Licensed Real Estate Appraiser, and finally Appraiser Trainee. TALB has defined separate scope and educational requirements for each of these. The official website of Texas Appraiser Board provides a detailed account of the educational requirements and licensing procedures for each category of licensure.

It is also possible to file a complaint against a Texas appraiser who does not comply to the standards of real estate appraisal practice. As a statutory agency to protect public rights, the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board takes necessary actions against such appraisers after a thorough investigation.
