On April 11, 2023, Governor Sanders signed Senate Bill 354 into law, which is now Act 628. The new law creates the State Board of Appraisers, Abstracters, and Home Inspectors.
The new board will be composed of eleven members, appointed by the Governor, and subject to confirmation by the Arkansas Senate. Members will be chosen based on their expertise and experience in the fields of appraisers, abstracters, and home inspectors. Also, the board will include a financial member and senior/consumer member.
The merger of these boards will streamline the regulatory process and create a more efficient and effective system for overseeing these important careers. The new board, which begins its work on July 1, 2023, will be able to provide a more comprehensive and coordinated approach to regulating the professions of appraisers, abstracters, and home inspectors.
Staff will continue processing the daily responsibilities of all of the new divisions. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office at 501-296-1843.
For clarification it should be noted that previously licensed Home Inspector Justin Hall HI-1842 (in Cabot) is a separate individual from Justin Hall of Hall Engineering, Ltd. (Little Rock). Justin Hall of Hall Engineering is not licensed to conduct fee paid Home Inspections in the state of Arkansas.
