The state's official form is just titled “BOND” but is more commonly known as the “appraisal management company bond” or “AMC bond.” This bond is specifically used to protect individuals from a professional appraisal practice that violates the Pennsylvania Appraisal Management Company Registration Act or other Pennsylvania Code regarding service nonperformance or fee nonpayment.
Why do appraisal management companies need to be bonded?

If they fail to do so, their issuing surety company will pay valid claims to harmed individuals up to the full $40,000 bond amount, which the AMC must reimburse.
