Virginia Appraisal Board

Virginia Real Estate Appraiser Board regulates people and firms associated with the job of appraisal anywhere in the state. The board came into existence in 1990 after the passage of a federal act that necessitated the formation of a separate board in each state for the regulation and licensure of the real estate appraisers who perform federally-related appraisals. The main objective of the Virginia Appraisal Board is to serve community by providing qualified and honest real estate appraisers and also by taking immediate actions upon the complaints it receives from the consumers. It is the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation that provides support to Virginia Real Estate Appraisal Board in executing its tasks.
