A Guide to Appraisal Management Company Bonding
SuretyBonds.com is legally licensed to issue AMC bonds nationwide. Whether you work in Arizona, Illinois, North Carolina or Georgia, we can help you get the bond you need.
In many states, the appraisal management company (AMC) licensing process requires that AMCs obtain a surety bond guaranteeing that they will operate in accordance with all federal and state laws relating to the appraisal industry. Should the need arise, these bonds can be used to reimburse those who suffer loss or damage as a result of actions by companies that fail to abide by the terms of the bond. If loss or damage does occur, consumers may file a claim against the bond, at which point the surety backing the bond will pay up to the full amount of the bond. The person for whom the bond was written—the principal— must then reimburse the surety company for all money paid to resolve the claim. Because the exact purpose of this bond may not seem entirely clear, the experts at SuretyBonds.com have developed this guide to surety bonds for appraisal management companies.

Why Do I Need an Appraisal Management Company Surety Bond?
Appraisal management company bonds are required by individual states as part of the licensing process, and failure to do so may result in the denial of a new license or the revocation of an existing license. Therefore, if the bond is canceled, expires or otherwise becomes ineffective at any point during the license period, it is the responsibility of the appraisal management company to immediately inform the state office in charge of licensing in order to find out the best course of action to ensure they are not at risk of being penalized.
