This is really not a fair question to ask, however...

What is the States system after recieving an appraisal which is sent in...

I guess what I am looking for is the process once the appraisal is downloaded including timeframes (I said it wasn't fair..:rof: ).

I realize that each ""report"" will be different, just looking for a general idea.

Sorry and Thanks...

I'm short on time right now...so I'll expand my comments later. I'd quickly say that NY is ASB-compliant with regard to investigations.

i can only give you my experience with a formal complaint (not anonomous) that i sent in recently.

i faxed the complaint on 9/25 and received back via e-mail the same day that it had been received and would be docketed and sent to an investigator.

this week i got a letter dated 10/11/07 from the state investigator stating that they have forwarded a copy of my complaint to the respondents and after they receive the replies i will be advised of any further action taken on this case. (typical form letter)

i will let you know when i get any other letters.

one of the reasons (of many) that i did this formally and not anonomously as i usually do was to find out how long the process does take.

i do know that one of the respondences is very good at dragging his heels in getting back to the state. we shall see

hope this helps. :)

Hi Tony,

FYI, the basic processes are spelled out in the Executive Law, Chapters 160-u through 160-w.

As far as the actual process goes, I don't know how long it takes. At the last board meeting, Ernest was quizzed about this matter, and the long and short of it was that NY is ASB compliant.

A form has to be filled out with the complaint. Some are submitted anonymously, others are not. The really bad ones I don't mind putting my name on. On a few, the people may kind of know me, so I would submit them anonymously...when you're in the business long enough, you get to meet a lot of folks...both good and bad.

I was told that all complaints are investigated. Some are bogus complaints and get dismissed very quickly. Others are more serious. Some may even be so bad that the AG's office will be notified. That seems to be especially true when certain patterns arise. Unlike the DOS, the AG's office does not have to take the case...they have a lot of big fish to fry.

One thing that could slow down the process is when the RA receives the report. NY state doesn't pay the RA's that well, and, in what seems like kind of a trade-off, the RA's can take their time...If it takes a couple months, so be it. However, the RA's that I've met seem to be very professional and concerned. They do the best they can. RA's may also be called to testify.

Since I've been submitting a few with my name on them, I'll keep you abreast of what's happening.

I'm just wondering who does the investigating of files. Board members, RA's, contracted appraisers?

Jo can probably answer that one.

I speculate though...Unless the appraiser under investigation is willing to turn over the workfile voluntarily, it would have to be supeonaed. So I imagine that comes from the court, through Ernest's office.
