How far in advance of expiration date should my appraiser renewal be completed?

Olivia Flood -

Please renew your credential at least 30 days prior to expiration and before the first of the month of your expiration. You may renew your credential up to one hundred twenty (120) days prior to expiration. 

Licensed and Certified appraisers should know that if their credential is not renewed before the first of the month prior to expiration, then they will fall off the Appraisal Subcommittee of Congress’ National Registry.  This may cause FHA and other lending agencies to remove the appraiser from the panel for a month or longer. 

The administrative staff of the Real Estate Appraiser Commission cannot reinstate an appraiser to the FHA panel. 

You may check your status on the National Registry via the Appraisal Subcommittee.
