Dealing With the Texas Appraiser Licensing & Certification Board (TALCB)

You need experienced legal help on your side, right away.

We understand TALCB disciplinary procedures
TALCB regulates five certification and licensed appraiser classifications in Texas:
- Appraiser Trainees
- Licensed Residential Appraisers
- Certified Residential Appraisers
- Certified General Appraisers
- Appraisal Management Companies
TALCB oversight includes the process for when a complaint is filed against you, an appraisal professional – a process that can be a complex and frustrating one. When a TALCB complaint is filed against you, you will have only 20 days to respond. The preliminary TALCB investigation can then take up to 3 months for the board to determine if the alleged violation warrants opening a formal TALCB complaint.
The process for formal complaint investigation provides you a 20-day window for additional response. After your response, the case could be dismissed. However, the board may recommend disciplinary actions. You may face a hearing before the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). Following some board or SOAH rulings, you have the right to appeal the decision. During the appeal process you will again have rights and options available to you.
