ADVISORY OPINION 19 (AO-19) USPAP SUBJECT: Unacceptable Assignment
Conditions in Real Property Appraisal Assignments APPLICATION: Real Property  
ISSUE: All real property appraisal assignments involve conditions that affect the
appraiser’s scope of work and the type of report. What types of conditions are
unacceptable?

ADVISORY OPINION 11 (AO-11) USPAP Standards Rules 2-2 and 8-2 of the Uniform
Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) offer
three written
appraisal report options
. What information should be contained in each type of
report?

COMP OR VALUE CHECK-USPAP Q & A May 2006:
To answer this question, it is important to identify exactly what the appraiser is being
asked to do. If the appraiser is asked to “provide comps,” that would typically mean the
appraiser would be exercising his or her own judgment to determine which sales are
most “comparable” to the subject property. The appraiser may choose to include only
those sales that he or she deems are most similar to the subject in size, location,
quality, etc., which could mean that certain sales may be omitted. In this case, the
resulting data would have been “filtered” by the appraiser’s judgment, which would
have the net effect of providing a range of value to the client. This range of value is
defined as an appraisal under USPAP; therefore, the appraiser would be obligated to
comply with STANDARDS 1 and 2.

ASB for the resolution of appraisal issues and problems.) appraiser expert witness

Once you have selected an appraiser, be prepared to answer questions and provide
requested information such as:

  • What is the purpose of the appraisal?
  • Discuss any special conditions with the appraiser prior to ordering the appraisal
  • When is the required completion date of the appraisal?
  • Is the property listed for sale and if so, for how much and with whom?
  • Is there a mortgage? If so, with whom, when was it placed, for how much, type of
    mortgage [FHA, VA etc.], interest rate, and are there any other types of financing.
  • What personal property, such as appliances, are included ?
  • If it is an income producing property, a breakdown of income and expenses for
    the last year or two and a copy of leases.
  • A copy of deed, survey, purchase agreement or other pertinent papers pertaining
    to the property.
  • A copy of current real estate tax bill, statement of special assessments, balance
    owing and on what [sewer, water, etc.
  • Have there been any recent room additions or remodels.
