What does a SD appraisal management company bond protect?

The South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation Appraiser Certification Program requires all applicants for registration as an appraisal management company to obtain a $25,000 surety bond. An AMC surety bond is a form of consumer protection for the obligee (SD Department of Labor and Regulation). The surety bond ensures that the principal (applicant for AMC registration) will abide by all applicable rules and regulations concerning their work, such as the South Dakota Codified Law 36-21D and the Administrative Rule of South Dakota 20:77.

If the principal practices negligence or fails to abide by these codes resulting in damages or harm to consumers, affected consumers could file a claim up to the bond’s full $25,000 amount. The surety company will cover the claim with the guarantee that the principal will reimburse the surety for any money paid out.
