FAQs About Hurricane Ike and TALCB Licensees

  • Q: Who is granted an extension as a result of Hurricane Ike?

    A:  All TALCB licensed and certified appraisers and trainees who were impacted by Ike because they live or have their principal place of business in one of the twenty-nine listed counties that were declared by Governor Perry to be disaster areas and either:

        A. have a license, certification, or trainee approval expiration date between September 30, 2008, and February 28, 2009, or
        B. have an application due to expire between September 7, 2008, and February 28, 2009.

    The impacted counties are: Angelina, Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Cherokee, Fort Bend, Galveston, Grimes, Hardin, Harris, Houston, Jasper, Jefferson, Liberty, Madison, Matagorda, Montgomery, Nacogdoches, Newton, Orange, Polk, Sabine, San Augustine, San Jacinto, Trinity, Tyler, Walker, Waller, and Washington.

  • Q. How long is the extension?

    A:  Covered licensees, certificate holders, and trainees will have an additional four months from their stated expiration date.

  • Q: What does the extension allow?

    A:  Covered licensees, certificate holders, and trainees may, at anytime within that four month period, file their renewal application, pay their renewal fee, and complete any required education Those who are assessed a National Registry fee must pay this fee at the time of renewal.

    For those that have submitted an application an additional four months will be granted to complete exams and all other application requirements.

    A:  If you are an active licensed appraiser, certified appraiser, or approved trainee, your license, certification, or approval will remain active until the end of the four month period even though you have not supplied all of the specific renewal requirements. A new license, certificate, or approval will not issue until all requirements have been met, but the TALCB records will note that your license, certificate, or approval remains active. The National Registry will also continue to reflect your active status.

    If you do not submit the renewal fee and form and obtain all required ACE, your license will expire at the end of the four month period with your initial expiration date.

    A:  No. Your application expires in March 2009. Only applications that expire between September 7, 2008 and February 28, 2009 are eligible for an extension.

  • Q: : I filed an application for appraiser certification and my application expires in November 2008. The exam sites are unable to schedule me for an exam before my application expires. Am I covered under the extension?
