File a Complaint Against a Nonmember Appraiser
Each U.S. State and Territory has an appraiser regulatory agency which is responsible for certifying and licensing the real estate appraisers who practice within its jurisdiction. These agencies also have procedures for reviewing complaints.
The Appraisal Subcommittee of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (“ the ASC”) was created in 1989 to oversee the activities of States and The Appraisal Foundation. The ASC’s mission is to ensure that real estate appraisers, who perform appraisals in real estate transactions that could expose the United States government to financial loss, are sufficiently trained and tested to assure competency and independent judgment according to uniform high professional standards and ethics.
By using the ASC’s links to the individual State sites you can find information on a State’s specific requirements for making a complaint.
Please note that many states do not accept anonymous referrals and some states will send a copy of your complaint to the subject appraiser.
