Any change to the following information must be submitted to the Missouri Real Estate Appraisers Commission within 30 days.
If you are the Designated Controller of the AMC, the person who ensures the company will comply with all regulations, start by completing and notarizing an appraisal management company application. You will need to provide your personal information (name, address, phone, email, licensing, criminal history, etc.), company details, and consent for a background check of all controlling persons (anyone owning 10% or more of the company).
Once your application is complete, submit a payment fee of $350.00 to the commission.
Then, submit a copy of current and active authorization to conduct business in Missouri from the Missouri Secretary of State.
Complete and notarize the Designation of Controlling Person form, which officially establishes one person as the Designated Controlling Person of the AMC. This is the same person who is responsible for the completion of the initial application. This form will require you to, again, provide personal information such as contact information, appraisal certification, and criminal history.
Those owning 10% or more of the company must complete and notarize the Control Person Application to identify all controlling persons of the AMC. It must be completed separately for each individual, and will require additional personal information and consent for a background check.
Once all controlling persons have been established, each person will need to be fingerprinted, and then submit proof of doing so.
Submit verification of each state, U.S. territory, province, or country regulatory entity in which a license, certificate, registration, or permit as an appraisal management company is held or has ever been held directly to the Missouri Real Estate Appraisal Commission.
