Can't we request a copy of the review appriasal, so we can rebuttal?
We were ask to rebut, but there information is vague, and they won't release a copy of the review appraisal, so it's kind of hard to rebut. I was under the impression we could have a copy......was I miss informed?

Who and what are you rebutting? Typically a review is completed on the APPRAISAL, not the appraiser, so if you are given items which were of concern to the review appraiser you can go ahead and send them comments on that information.

No it's not common to receive a copy of the review. Normally it's not a review appraisal either.

Who informed you you could get a copy of the review? If you were so informed go back to them and request it.

Yes you can.

although Stefan is correct, it often isn't a real review. My rule is if a copy of the review is not provided I will not respond to it. If it is provided and is one of these "enhanced review products" where someone sat at a desk, pulled 3 sales from MLS and knocked my value down I do respond in a very,very strong tone. If a lender wants to question a value, no problem. If I am provided a real review, by a competent appraiser, I will be glad to rebut their findings. My guess is that isn't what happened here. If they don't supply it, I refuse to respond and put it in very strong writing. If you do get a copy of it and it was done in an egregious manner and the appraiser stepped all over USPAP (which is standard) kick it up to your state board.

"Rebuttaling" Is that even a word? If not it probably should be.

It's hard to address a difference of opinion if you don't know the basis of that opinion and how it was developed. If a reviewer is local to that area and conducted a field review that's one thing; if they're sitting at a desk 1,000 miles away from the subject property and have never set foot in the area then that's something else entirely.

Thank you

Thank you for your responses! As you figured out, I obviously can't spell!

This is the only response I would know to make. Sometimes it's just a difference of opinion.
