Licensing for appraisal management companies in Delaware is facilitated by the state’s Council on Real Estate Appraisers.
As a condition of licensing, you are required to provide evidence of obtaining a surety bond of at least $20,000. What we write about below, assumes a surety bond in that amount; however, we offer a surety bond in whatever amount you require. The state offers a packet for registering. We offer this bond for both first time and renewal applicants.
You are automatically approved for the $20,000 Delaware appraisal management company bond. There is no credit check. (We also offer this bond up to a $50,000 requirement without a credit check).
This means that the bond is issue to you immediately upon a short surety bond application – which we’ll take from you over the phone --- and payment of the premium, 1%, $200 of the $20,000 amount.
When you call us, we’ll just ask you the basics:
The name, exactly as you require it to appear on your surety bond, along with your contact information. Besides just your address, this includes a good phone number and email.
After payment of the premium, 1% of the amount required, our agency issues you two documents: A surety bond and a Power of Attorney (POA) form.
Upon receipt of your bond in the mail, you’ll sign your bond as Principal, filing it along with the POA to:
State of Delaware, Council on Real Estate Appraisers
861 Silver Lake Blvd., Suite 203
Dover, DE 19904-2467
The standard premium associated with your appraisal management company bond is active for one year. Thereafter, it, along with your surety bond, renew.

The purpose of this surety bond is to serve as a financial guarantee that your appraisal management business, and its employees, will observe all Delaware and any other applicable laws in the course of your business conduct.
