Virginia Requires Mandatory Fair Housing Valuation Bias Continuing Education
Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin on April 6 signed SB 284, making the state the latest to require appraisers to take continuing education related to fair housing and valuation bias. California, Minnesota and New York have similar requirements.
The law will take effect July 1, 2023, and thereafter appraisers will be required to complete at least two hours of continuing education in fair housing or valuation bias courses as a condition for renewing their license every two years.
