Disciplinary complaints against appraisers have become more numerous over the last several years, although not all complaints result in disciplinary action.  In this course, we will cover the basic 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.
