West Virginia Appraisers

The West Virginia Real Estate Appraiser Licensing & Certification Board is a regulatory agency created by an act of the West Virginia Legislature in 1990. The law, titled West Virginia Real Estate Appraiser Licensing & Certification Act, can be found in Chapter 30, Article 38 of the Code of West Virginia. Our mission is to protect the public interest by assuring that all consumers of real estate appraisal services receive such services from appraisers who are fully qualified in accordance with both Federal and State law. These responsibilities are accomplished through a variety of efforts including testing of potential licensees, pre-license and continuing education requirements, investigation of complaints and disciplinary action against licensees as warranted.
