I know this link exists but darned if I can find it in any of the forums or general search :oops:

I don't fill out but one Freddie 2055 every two+ years, and I WOULD be doing it on a rural atypical house... 8O

At least it was an interior inspection and I charged ALMOST enough :roll:

Go to the top of the AppraisesrForum page under forum services. Click on Appraiser Links. Go to Fannie Mae - Freddie Mac heading.

Instant web site. :D :D :D

Thanks Dave:

I had found the Freddie site through Google, and spent no small amount of time rafting through the lower portion of a certain odiferous creek.... attempting to find a nugget. None found.

I was sort of hoping to find the guidelines posted somewhere else... they appear to be that rare substance: unobtainium.

Conclusion I am running into is that short of spending the serious bucks for paper or electronic format Freddie Guidelines (available ONLY through Freddies sole authorized reseller ALLREGS. :evil: $430 ) I am just going to do what every local appraiser I have contacted suggested: do it by Fannie 2055 Guidelines, and ferrgiddit.

SO by the standard of peer competence and what your responsible peers would do I should be fine, right :? 8O :( . I have the cleint's verbal permission to proceed under his being advised that I have been unable to locate a copy, and my statement that I was considering declining the assignment on that basis.

I did take a 2055 class a few years ago, but given the number of rule changes from Fannie I was hoping to insure I don't run afoul of Freddie!

This sort of idiocy makes me really angry.

Fee for the rules exceeds the fee for the service. :evil:

Try http://adfweb1.adfinet.com/cgi-bin/web_regs You might like it.

You have to register but its free. I've used the site for both Fannie and her brother quite a bit.

After posting the above link I read the fiNe print, as follows.

09/05/2002 Notice To All Freddie Mac Guide Users (click here for full story) We have been notified
by Paul Peterson at Freddie Mac, that we will not be able to distribute the Freddie Mac Guides or Forms on
our website beginning September 7, 2002. Freddie Mac has made a strategic decision to allow only one
vendor the right to offer an electronic version of the Freddie Mac Guides to the mortgage industry.

THANK YOU UNCLE FREDDIE
:D :D :D :( :( :(
