Hi,
I am considering submitting an application to work for a new company and they are requesting two recent samples of my work. Can this be done without violating USPAP if I redact the client and subject address and subject owners information?? Can I still submit photos - exterior and interior? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I would probably just redact the client info. Without the subject info how useful is it?
I don't think this is a problem, someone else may shoot me down though. :peace:

I always pull out all identifying information, they're not interested in the address, owners names, your client, lender; they're interested in what's in the report, how you handle the grid, and explain and/or defend adjustments.

Remove it all, and maybe drop the photo of the front of the house.

I refuse to redact. I would find a property and ask the client if I can provide it to another institution. Some will turn you down because of their own privacy requirements. Go figure. They want you to violate confidentiality that they want to keep. So several years ago I decided I didn't need those kinds of clients and refuse to provide them.

Isn't it stupid that the gov demands banks to vet appraisers including samples while at the same time telling appraisers they are fiduciaries, too, and cannot disclose personal information? GLB is a real joke and a lot of the problem that plagued this industry for nigh 2 decades.
