Department certification for professional real estate appraisers

The Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Title 43, Chapter 9, Subchapter F, provides rules for contracting for professional real estate appraisal services. These rules require that the appraiser be department certified by TxDOT.

Certification process

The opportunity to submit an application for department certification will remain open under current state rules. The department certification process is neither an award of a contract nor is it a guarantee of work, but you must be department certified by TxDOT before we may consider your response to Requests for Proposal (RFPs).


Appraisers must renew their department certification by providing TxDOT a current copy of their state license within 60 days of renewal by the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board.

Requests for proposals

TxDOT will publish RFPs for professional real estate appraisal services every two years and based on business needs. You must be listed as an approved department certified real estate appraiser no earlier than Aug. 12, 2012, to be eligible for consideration under the RFP process. Prior department certification does not qualify.
