Learning From the Mistakes of Others: Appraisal Disciplinary Case Studies
Want to steer clear of a complaint with your Appraisal Board? Want to see what others did to get a complaint, so you can avoid doing it too? Disciplinary complaints are a hot topic these days with appraisers. In this course, attorney and seasoned appraisal educator Mel Black will cover the essential components of the appraiser licensing and certification system and examine the complaint process in general. We will cover The Appraisal Foundation’s Voluntary Disciplinary Actions Matrix and provide examples of each type of violation listed. The examples and case studies in this course are all from actual cases against appraisers that were adjudicated by state appraisal enforcement agencies. Students will learn about common violations and how to avoid them. We will cover minor development and reporting violations, as well as more serious ethics rule and competency rule violations. We will go over several case study examples and discuss what violations (if any) occurred how the appraiser could have avoided the problem. Finally, we will discuss do’s and don’ts regarding what an appraiser should do if they become the respondent in a complaint. The strategies in this course will also help make you a better appraiser in your daily work and might help you avoid a complaint.
