Important information for all Appraisal Management Companies registered with the South Carolina Real Estate Appraisers Board

All Appraisal Management Companies currently conducting business in South Carolina must be registered with the South Carolina Real Estate Appraisers Board.  If you were registered and missed the June 30, 2019 renewal, you can still renew by paying late fees.  There was no renewal fee in 2019, but the late fees are $100 per month up to June 30, 2020.  You can locate the renewal application on the Board website under applications and forms (  You can also find other Appraisal Management Company forms, including the surety bond form, if you choose to submit a bond to the Board.

Appraisal Management Company registrations are renewed biennially in odd years.  Registrants will receive notice of their next renewal for Appraisal Management Company registration after April 1, 2021. 

National Registry fees were due on June 30, 2019, from Appraisal Management Companies who conducted business in South Carolina during 2018.  South Carolina has submitted all registered Appraisal Management Companies to the National Registry, including newly registered companies.  All Appraisal Management Companies will be required to submit the National Registry form and fees every year prior to June 30th.  We will be collecting the National Registry fees for 2020 after April 1, 2020.  The National Registry form will require a report of the number of appraisers on your panel that completed a covered transaction in South Carolina between the dates of January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019.  The expiration date, once fees are submitted in 2020 for the National Registry, will be June 30, 2021.
