Appraiser Liability and Independence: How to Protect Yourself
Presenter: Richard Hagar, SRA
Richard Hagar, SRA, national authority on lending and appraisal guidelines, noted educator and owner of a busy appraisal office, shows appraisers how to protect themselves in the real world from increasing challenges and pressure. Hagar shows how you can maintain independence, push back against harassment and still make a good living appraising.
In the this new environment, when an appraisal doesn’t “meet value,” appraisers can face pressure and harassment from borrowers, home owners, real estate agents, AMCs, lenders, and the list goes on! Pressure often leads to frivolous complaints to the lender, state appraisal board or both. An upset homeowner can falsely claim you forced your way onto the property; a real estate agent might say you never inspected the property or failed to lock up after an inspection. Even careful appraisers can find themselves in trouble if they don’t understand the rules of engagement. And even frivolous complaints take time, money and energy to untangle.
Do your best to protect yourself by learning a few simple techniques on staying out of trouble and standing up for your rights as an appraiser.
