Has anyone corrected mistakes on their work samples before they sent them off for review? Is that allowed? The value conclusions haven't changed, but it seems that every time I review my own work, I find errors

Yes, they are correctable just be sure that you notify the client and resubmit the report with something like this.

"Internal review of our work product detected errors which we have corrected. Enclosed is a corrected copy of the report which you should replace the referenced report with."

And keep a copy of the report(s) along with the letter.

A major faux might be time to discuss with the client. I find errors now and then myself. For instance, we did a Plans and Specs report a couple years ago. When doing the final I asked the owner if they had changed any of the plans and he said no. Although I had the sketch, I didn't catch on that there was a change he forgot to mention, namely what the P & S called a glass enclosed porch was made a solid wall and included in GLA whereas we hadn't incl. it as GLA in the original plans. Fast forward 18 mo. and when reinspecting it, realized the GEP was GLA which added about 200 SF to the GLA.

When you realize there is an error, the way I read the management and ethics sections you must correct it.

Are you speaking of insignificant narrative typo's or more along the line of what Terrel was talking about?

In North Dakota they attempt to catch what seems like every small error, be it spelling or math. I've had reports reviewed that for some reason had different GLA in two spots in a 100 page narrative. This was discovered and therefore I'm not working in ND.

I think it depends on what your board wants! North Dakota requests true copies but in reality they require demonstration reports....

IMHO

Applied to upgrade to CR. Was denied due to board review of my samples. They say my cost approach didn't jive. Everything else was satisfied (log hrs, CE ) What I really need to get done now is to get AQB compliant. I live 3 blocks from the Oklahoma Board office, so I walked in there and asked what I need to do. Rod replied that at this point he doesn't know, but he thinks i'll need to apply as if I'm getting a license for the first time. ( Iv'e been licensed sinse 2001). He said they are reviewing their rules because there are a few appraisers in my same shoes. He says he might have it all sorted out in a couple of months.

Corrected work samples

If they did, they would be fools to admit they did it on a public forum. Its not allowed.

Does it happen? If I was a betting person, I would bet it happens a lot.

I haven't heard of anyone being caught doing it, yet.

Does your State Board actually contact the lender for a duplicate true copy? Do any boards?
