Final Rule on Appraisal Management Companies

On April 21, 2015, six federal agencies released a joint final rule on minimum requirements for appraisal management companies (AMCs).  NAR supports the agencies' efforts to guide states in registering and supervising AMCs.  NAR commented on aspects of the proposed rule and provided recommendations for calculating appraiser panel membership for registration purposes, how to distinguish between an AMC and appraisal firm, and how the Appraisal Subcommittee could implement standards if a state chooses not to participate.  The final rule is largely the same as the proposed rule with a few modifications.  The final rule becomes effective 60 days from the date of publication in the federal register.
