Appraiser Liability: Using the AZ765 ANSI Measuring Standard
Date: March 27, 2013
Any appraiser who measures residential dwellings can benefit from learning about this reliable and accepted standard that should reduce common measuring errors.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) recently collaborated with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) to develop a standard method for measuring single family residences. The Z765-2003 ANSI Standard should be a win-win for residential appraisers of every experience level. Using one standard can help reduce measuring errors caused by using different measuring methods and can also minimize litigation alleging measurement misrepresentations of the gross living area.
Learn how some of your everyday practices could potentially lead to accidental measuring inaccuracies. Differing measurements abound in Gross Living Area figures in MLS listing forms and even among colleagues at the same appraisal firm.
