Important Notice Regarding Fingerprint Requirements for New, Upgrading and Renewing Appraisers

HB12-1110 requires all new and upgrading appraisers who submit an application on or after July 1, 2013 to submit a set of fingerprints to the Colorado Bureau of Investigations prior to the submission of their application. It is strongly suggested that possible candidates submit this information as soon as possible to avoid additional delays due to fingerprint processing times. Please review the fingerprint information bulletin for additional details.

All currently licensed appraisers must also submit a set of fingerprints prior to renewal for licenses that expire on December 31, 2013, 2014 and 2015. An appraiser who fails to submit fingerprints in time for their renewal will not be allowed to renew their license until prints are received, and may incur reinstatement penalty fees. The fingerprint process is currently taking between 4 and 6 months. Appraisers may begin the fingerprint submission process at any time. Appraisers expiring in 2013 are strongly encouraged to submit their fingerprints at least 6 months in advance of their renewal to ensure timely processing. Please review the instructions for submission of fingerprints for renewal for further details.

E&O Insurance Requirement

Effective July 1, 2013, all appraisers must have in effect a policy of Errors and Ommissions (E&O) insurance to cover appraisal activity. Please see our Appraiser E&O page for further details and a list of E&O insurance providers.

All upgrade and reciprocal license and certification applications must include proof of coverage.

Please Note: Fees are subject to change at any time. Please confirm the proper fee amount on our fees page prior to application submission . Applications submitted without the proper fee will be returned to applicant for correction. In accordance with 12-61-704 (1) (b), C.R.S., application fees are non-refundable.
