With so many appraisal guidelines and regulations, compliance can be challenging. Join this webinar to increase your appraisal prowess – which will reflect well on you and benefit your institution.

Learning Objectives

  • Use interagency guidelines for reviewing appraisals and valuations
  • Define the exceptions for obtaining a formal appraisal
  • Explain the fair lending concerns regarding property valuations
  • Distinguish between what constitutes an appraisal versus a valuation
  • Understand the safe harbor provisions for valuation independence
  • Determine when appraisal notices and copies of valuations must be provided

Appraisal fair lending issues, court orders, and enforcement actions have been in the news lately. This webinar will cover what you need to know about the appraisal and valuation process. When lending on real property, it is important for the creditor to determine the value of the property – largely to ensure the loan amount is appropriate and, in some circumstances, to ensure the loan amount is safe in the event of a foreclosure. Numerous laws and regulations come into play, so it is important to understand how they affect your work, including ordering an appraisal, conducting a formal valuation review process, knowing when a formal appraisal is not required (saving time and money!), and what to do if there appears to be coercion or mischaracterization of value.
