How do I check the FHA Appraiser Roster for a specific appraiser or obtain a list of appraisers?

FHA requires lenders to select qualified, competent and knowledgeable appraisers.

FHA maintains a list of qualified appraisers on the FHA Appraiser Roster. Only an Appraiser on the FHA Appraiser Roster and the Appraisal Subcommittee’s (ASC) National Registry may be selected by the lender to conduct an appraisal for FHA-insured financing.   

To check the status of a specific appraiser or to obtain a list of appraisers search the FHA Appraiser Roster at    

Appraisers who believe their roster status is incorrect or are unable to locate their information on the roster, may contact the FHA Resource Center by phone at 1-800-CALL FHA (1-800-225-5342) or by email at    When emailing the FHA Resource Center for assistance, please include your full name, phone number, email address, and license number in the body of the email.
