I am searching for inspection reports conducted (here in IL) for use in bifurcated appraisals and I am asking for your help. If the inspector is other than a licensed appraiser or a state licensed home inspector, the person who conducted the inspection may be in violation of license law for practicing without a license. If I have possession of such a report--and if I deem it appropriate--I will make a complaint to the state licensing agency. I will not use your name and I will hold the report for 30 days before forwarding (again, if I deem appropriate) it on as a complaint to the state. I cannot assure you, however, that someone might later suspect that you were somehow involved in the process; I can assure you that I will not attach your name to what I am doing.

Are you collecting names of real estate agents that put wrong information in the MLS or assessors that have wrong information too? Why stop at "observation specialists," go for the whole kit and caboodle!

Beware of unintended consequences Lee...

I am not really understanding the entirety of this post. I know a few appraisers who complete desktop appraisals with real estate agents doing drive bys and have no issues...what am I missing here?

Ouch...already outsmarted small fry.

The reports say. Something to the lines of, inspector didn’t do it for use in an appraisal but just fact based etc”

So kinda (I don’t think so) but if anything jokes on the appraiser for using a report that says, essentially, not for use in an appraisal.

Hahahaha. Again, I wouldn’t care about that wording....but they are 100% off the hook. Appraisers? Well, like normal, not smart enough to figure it out...just the pawns.

Just of curiosity, what kind of work did you do before you got into appraising?

you do know he is a former 9 year member of the Illinois Real Estate Appraisal Administration and Disciplinary Board, dont you?

while this is no guarantee that any action will result in positive results for illinois appraisers, im sure he knows what he is talking about and how to approach the discussion with the state.
