Since my very first AI ready report conversion I have had reservations regarding its ability to send to the lender a true copy of the report that I had produced in PDF format. I've also seen this controversy building over the past six months. Let me share with you my fix to the problem. At first I always sent a PDF copy of the report to my clients via email and told them that this was done specifically because the ENV format did not include all of the photos; exhibits; boldened, colored or highlighted text; and graphics that were included in the original PDF version of the report. That way they could choose which version to use. Some of the clients did not want the burden of extra emails clogging their inbox, fair enough. I now use the message log to tell my clients that a true copy of the report has been uploaded in PDF format as the invoice file. I then use the invoice button to upload the PDF version. Perhaps AppraisalPort could add a third upload button: "True Copy", or "PDF Version". The lender could choose the ENV format but still be on notice that a true copy of the report exists as a PDF, if just for reference. I understand this fix does not quite the critics who argue that ENV conversion "de-constructs" the report, including the signature graphic, with attendant potential for harm. On the other hand, one must assume some level of trust in sending any report, in any format, ever. Unscrupulous people have always had the potential to alter reports, steal signatures and abuse the appraiser's trust. I just can't imagine that this will change any time soon. ENV makes this no more or less difficult.
