The objectives of this course are to increase the credibility of the professional appraiser and to promote the highest level of trust in appraisal reporting practices. 
Students who complete the course will grasp the importance of disclosures in ensuring that appraisal reports contain sufficient information and are not misleading to intended users. Students also will understand the role of disclaimers in informing intended users about the appraiser’s lack of knowledge in certain areas, as well as helping appraisers limit their liability. 
 Disclosures required by USPAP will be highlighted, as will disclosures for specific situations including FHA appraisals, environmental issues, and property deficiencies. The role of disclaimers in these various situations will be explored in depth. 
In addition to the end-of-chapter quizzes and final exam, this course contains mini-quizzes that will test the knowledge of the material throughout each chapter. The mini-quizzes will help prepare you for not only the end-of-chapter quiz, but also the comprehensive review quiz at the end of the course.

Chapter list:

1. Introduction to Disclosures and Disclaimers
2. USPAP Related Disclosures
3. Scope of Work and Related Disclosures
4. Environmental Issues
5. Property Condition and Reporting Issues

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great course to take every couple of years as litigation changes laws and the way a report should be written. Updates to how we disclose or disclaim are made yearly due to litigation and enforcement. A very good class!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have been out of the appraisal business for any length of time, or are just starting out, this course is a must. I loved the sample disclosure and disclaimer statements. They allowed me to really think about and construct my own. I even caught a couple of mistakes in disclaimers that I have used in the past.
