Engagement Letters
Date: November 20, 2018
Duration: 2 hours

Although neither the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice nor the Appraisal Institute Code of Professional Ethics requires the use of written engagement agreements, using a written agreement to set out the details of an assignment is a sound business practice.

In 2018, the Appraisal Institute updated its sample appraisal engagement materials for non-litigation work to serve as a resource for appraisers drafting their own engagement agreements. Having been updated to incorporate key lessons from the last real estate downturn and changes in standards, the sample engagement materials::

  • Help appraisers portray an increased level of professionalism.
  • Create more enforceable payment options.
  • Provide leverage to appraisers in negotiating better terms of engagement.
  • Introduce several key provisions that most appraisers do not have in their present agreements.
  • Help appraisers reduce risk by including new provisions based on the latest caselaw concerning appraiser liability.
