Renew Your License - Maryland Commission of Real Estate Appraisers, Appraisal Management Companies and Home Inspectors

 

A real estate appraiser license must be renewed by the third anniversary of the issuance of the license and every three years thereafter. The Commission will mail renewal applications and instructions approximately 30 days prior to the expiration date of the current license. If a licensee's failure to receive a license renewal packet is due to his/her failure to advise the Commission of a change of address, the Commission is not responsible for late renewals or any late fees that might be imposed. A $15.00 change of address fee is required. A written request is required in order to change your licensing records to reflect a change of address.

If it is required that you have a certification or complete a certain number of continuing education or competency units, credits, or hours of instruction in order to be eligible to renew or reinstate your license, certificate, or registration, you must fulfill these requirements prior to submitting your application. The required continuing education or competency units, credits or hours must be completed before you file this application for renewal or reinstatement, regardless of the expiration date on the license, certificate or registration to be renewed.

If you have not fully completed the courses, units, credits, or hours you are certifying that you have taken, you may be subject to disciplinary action for falsely representing that you have met the requirements and qualify for the license, certificate or registration for which you have applied. The results of disciplinary action against you could include the suspension or revocation of the license, certificate, or registration that you have obtained.

Reinstatement of an Expired License

A real estate appraiser who fails to renew their license during its regular term may renew the license/certificate if the applicant meets all continuing education and filing requirements; and pays the Commission a reinstatement fee of $75.00 in addition to the renewal fee required. Prior to the reinstatement of an expired license/certificate, a license/credential holder must complete all required continuing education hours that would have been required if the license/credential was in an active status, dating back to the expiration of the license/certificate. The required hours must also include the most recent edition of a 7-hour National USPAP Update Course.

A home inspector license must be renewed by the second anniversary of the issuance of the license and every subsequent two years. The Commission will mail renewal applications and instructions approximately 30 days prior to the expiration date of the current license. If a licensee's failure to receive a license renewal packet is due to his/her failure to advise the Commission of a change of address, the Commission is not responsible for late renewals or any late fees that might be imposed. At this time no fee is required for a change of address. A home inspector must provide evidence of a minimum of $150,000 of general liability insurance in order to renew a license.
