Homebuyer Assistance Act of 2019

This bill modifies requirements for appraisers of Federal Housing Administration-insured mortgages. Currently, an appraiser must be certified by certain state or national entities. The bill removes the national entities from the list of approved certification entities and allows an appraiser for a mortgage for single-family housing to be state-licensed rather than state-certified to meet requirements. The bill also provides specified educational requirements for appraisers for mortgages for single-family housing.
