Recently, I received notice that a homeowner filed a complaint against myself due to not completing an appraisal report. Basically, they were upset that the order was eventually cancelled because I did not get the order completed as quickly as they would have liked. I received paperwork from the state, requesting my work file and informing me of this complaint. My question is this, how can I be reprimanded for report I never completed? There are many reasons why delivery of the report was delayed, with the biggest simply being the complexity of the property. It is interesting also, that the person filing the complaint is also the best friend of our real estate agent that we fired while we were trying to sell our home. All that aside, I am happy to comply with sending them my work file, but I am just curious how USPAP applies here, if at all? All that I had completed before the order was cancelled was inspection of the property.
