House Bill H829




Only if this bill becomes NC Law

can the North Carolina Appraisal Board be granted the authority
to make rules to enforce

This bill is very important to the NC economy.

It supports small businesses (in this case, appraisers) who are all NC tax paying businesses and residents

- versus -

Appraisal Management Companies / AMC's who are mostly large corporations based outside of our state.

It protects consumers in line with federal laws.

 The governor SIGNED INTO NC LAW 
The Customary and Reasonable Appraiser Fee Law
June 20, 2016

The North Carolina Real Estate Appraiser Association (NCREAA) worked diligently for over a year with our legislators for the passage of the C&R Fee Law.
The Governor of North Carolina, Pat McCroy, signed Senate Bill 600 into law June 20, 2016.

This legislation addressed the Dodd/Frank requirement that appraisal management companies pay appraisers customary and reasonable fees, and is the result of 18 months of continuous negotiation between NCREAA and members of the General Assembly. 
The law granted enforcement authority to the North Carolina Appraisal Board. 
North Carolina appraisers now have direct state protections
as mandated in the federal law.

NCREAA wishes to thank both the original bill sponsors and the sponsors of the final version of the bill. Thank you Representative David Lewis, Representative John Szoka,
and Representative Jason Saine 
for sponsoring our original House Bill 577,
and assisting NCREAA in eventually passing this piece of legislation.

Our gratitude also goes out to Senator Wesley Meredith, Senator Bill Rabon,
and Senator Paul Lowe, 
the original sponsors of Senate Bill 600, for agreeing to allow
our language to be inserted into the final version of their bill.

NCREAA wishes to thank the North Carolina Association of Realtors, North Carolina Chapter of the Appraisal Institute, the North Carolina Professional Appraiser Coalition,
the Appraisal Section of the North Carolina Association of Realtors
for supporting passage of this bill.

NCREAA also networked and communicated with other state appraisal organizations across the country which have passed similar legislation in their states. This networking experience between state appraisal organizations is an invaluable tool in refining our legislative efforts here in North Carolina, and NCREAA is proud to participate in this nationwide collaborative effort to address appraiser issues in our individual states.
