Real Estate Appraisers

Supervisory Appraiser Requirements – Effective July 1, 2013

Effective July 1, 2013, all individuals in the position of “Supervisory Appraiser” must meet or exceed the minimum qualifications set forth by the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB).  

Persons wishing to become a supervisor of one or more appraiser assistants must provide evidence of having a general or residential appraiser certification in New York State and must have been state certified for a minimum of three years.

An individual who has had a real estate broker, salesperson or an appraisal license or certification revoked or suspended within the last three years is ineligible to receive instructor approval from the Department and is ineligible to supervise appraiser assistants. 

The Supervising Real Estate Appraiser shall be responsible for the training and direct supervision of the appraiser assistant. Supervisory Appraisers may not supervise more than three trainee appraisers at one time.  A trainee appraiser is permitted to have more than one Supervisory Appraiser.

All appraisers who will be a “Supervisory Appraiser” and meet the qualifications must submit a Real Estate Appraiser Instructor and Supervisory Appraiser application (DOS-1491) to our office. 

 


Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons

Effective January 1, 2013, revisions to Article 12A of the Real Property Law have amended the fees for performing the "Termination of a Salesperson or Associate Broker" and "Change of Association" transactions. The new fees are as follows:

• Termination Fee will change to $0 for each transaction
• Change of Association Fee will change to $20 per transaction

The online Real Estate System, eAccessNY, has been modified to incorporate these revised fees effective January 1, 2013. The statute continues to mandate that each broker perform these transactions in a timely manner.
