If the lender is your client...chalk the reasoning up to Confidentiality Section of the Ethics Rule.....Look at Statement on Appraisal Standards No. 5 (SMT-5)

To quote a portion:

" An appraiser must not disclose confidential information or assignment results prepared for a client to anyone other than: 1) the client and persons specifically authorize by the client; 2) state enforcement agencies and such third parties as may be authorized by due process of law; and 3) a duly authorized professional peer review committee. ...."



Look under the Ethics Rule at the front of USPAP book.

Why don't you call your client and respectfully ask them to take care of their borrower. It is not your problem.

Make sure the attorney sees the cover--Appraisal Standards Board by the Appraisal Foundatuion--Authorized by Congress as the Source of Appraisal Standards and Appraiser Qualifications. That Congress comment kinda slows an attorney or borrower down.

Thank U guys so much Lawyers answer is SPECIFICALLY AUTHORIZED BY THE CLIENT. Y not just call the client get permission to give her a copy. So no matter what USPAP says just ask client & get the OK that way Client doesn't have to deal with Irrate customer BETTER YET JUST GET VALUE NEEDED then no IRRATE customer (Intened to add humor HYPOTHITICAL said only in jest by Irrate Appraiser)

Lawyers don't care what the law says. Their job is to circumvent the law and the intent of the law. If people went by the law what would we need lawyers for. I just saw one run down the street when he saw me because he owes me $300. That keeps them at bay.

Just in case the lawyer doesn't buy the USPAP argument, there is probably also a state law on the books in Arizona that stipulates that it is the lender's responsibility to distribute the report to the borrower. I know that California has such a law. When you find it, copy it and send it off to the lawyer. That'll shut them up.
