Appraisal Management Company Registration Program
The State of South Dakota's Appraisal Management Company Registration Program was established in accordance with legislation enacted during the 2011 South Dakota Legislative Session. The Program accepts applications to register Appraisal Management Companies in this state. Any appraisal management company doing business in the State of South Dakota on or after January 1, 2012 is required to be duly registered or cease business until registered.
Read an important announcement about a requirement for Appraisal Management Companies to maintain a surety bond or irrevocable letter of credit, which became effective July 1, 2014.
Please review these documents to ensure compliance.
