Just wondering if anyone happens to know if there is any "Appropriate Verbage" that should be used on the appraisal report regarding the assistance of a trainee on the assignment, and where exactly should it be placed. This is in regards to the trainee getting credit, and the client being made aware of the assistance. I'm located in California.....if that makes any difference.


Thanks!!

Thanks for the reply. Is this all you would need to add to the report, or is there something else, or would the appraiser need to sign anywhere else? Just wan't to make sure I'm in compliance!

thanks, Dave.

Just disclose that you assisted and to what extent.

Also, make sure that you have logged in your hours of work to go toward your 2000 hours of training. Some states may have an approved log sheet they require you use.
