An appraisal management company I work for, has asked me to substitute there information; e-mail address, and telephone number in the signature portion of the 1004 report were my name, license information, and address is contained. I've always been told that I'm required to use the telephone number and e-mail address on file with my license. I was challegened to cite the portion of USPAP that supports my argument and I'm unable to do so. Can anyone help?

Lew,

You post is unclear. First, what is you supervisors position on this issue? You are required under Florida Law to be working under direct supervision. How are you working for an AMC?

Also nothing requires email addresses to be in an appraisal.

My wife is a certified and my supervisor, but not registered with this site. She has worked as an appraiser since 1992 beginning in WV. It was not my intent to be misleading, I suggested this site for clarification. She is of the opinion that a completed report must reflect the email address and telephone information on file with the state.

If the field is intended for the appraiser conatct information then by all means put your information. There is nothing in USPAP which states you must provide the address registered with the state. Florida law requires that you register any address at which you conduct appraisal work. I don't work with the forms, but I teach USPAP and Florida Law. (this Friday Saturday in Fort Myers).

I have wondered this myself, they want you to put their information because they don't want the client to go directly to you for business. I have been asked this by a few appraisal companies, not appraisal management companies. The thought also is that I want my contact information because I may need to defend my appraisal, not someone who did not complete the report.

Dennis, I have a question very similar to this one. What is the exact part of Florida Chapter 475, Part II, that covers the address for a licensee?

Here you go...

http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes...TM&Title=->2007->Ch0475->Section 623#0475.623

It's 475.623

Although appraisers are not required to include contact information, by law, in an appraisal report, Florida law does require registration or certification number and license/registration status. If the scope of work agreed to with the client involves proper completion of a Fannie/Freddie form, it seems to me the appraiser's actual business address would be required. If something other than that is used, someone could make a case for "misleading".
