Most recent order - FIRST line:

"ALL ADOBE PDF FILES MUST BE LOCKED AND NON-EDITABLE OR THEY WILL BE REJECTED"
:clapping:

Looks to me like Pam's lawsuit is having some effect!

Now, if we could just get it IN WRITING that they will not unlock it, and/or allow it to be unlocked, and/or cause it to be unlocked, and/or will not send it to any entity that does not guarantee it will not be unlocked... for ANY REASON.

Was this from an AMC or lender? This is just proof of what has been going on. They must be getting ready for what is coming, and it is not only from us appraisers.

One AMC good folk told me they had a meetihg, the staff had to stop opening PDF's.

Using what program? Adobe has a document security feature that lets you password protect the file. There are also different functions you can disable ie. disabling copy/cut/add text features. Essentially "locking out" the file recipient from specific functions that may change the document.

Your software likely does that for you if you use a form report. If you do a narrative and save as a .pdf file, your .pdf driver has settings that allow you to set security (lock) items.
If you use Adobe Writer then check under Document>Security>How to
or in the print menu choose Adobe as your printer then >Properties > select Adobe PDF Security and pull down the menu pick something besides "none" then EDIT, and from that menu check "use a password..." and set it so someone can read it or print it but not edit it.
Other PDF programs have similar menus usually under "security". For you to edit it, you have to put in the password.
