USPAP Advisory Opinion 26 (AO-26) States that "Once a report has been prepared for a named client(s) and any other identified users and for an identified intended use, the appraiser cannot "readdress (transfer) the report to another party."
I therefore cannot honor requests for a copy of an appraisal completed for another client. If you need an appraisal for a property that I have completed recently for another client, you must place a new order & pay the following fees:
(1) New order with an effective date that is the same as a recent full inspection - $50.00
(2) New order with same effective date but new parameters -
To be negotiated on a case by case basis
(3) New order with new effective date: Full fee minus $100
(This is also called a "redo")
LATE DELIVERY REFUND ... $100.00 plus any "rush fees"!
(1) $100 Late fee discount applies if the first draft of the appraisal or field review is not electronically delivered (i.e. by fax, email by PDF file, or via EDI) by 9:00 AM of the fourth business day after inspection. Additional days late are discounted $10 per day. Drive-by orders are guaranteed to be delivered electronically by 9:00 AM of the fourth business day after the written order if in Lehigh and Northampton County only and in writing and fully accepted. Otherwise, it is based on the drive-by inspection date,.
(2) Hardcopies (only on request) will be mailed two day priority the next business day after completion unless otherwise instructed.
(3) Overnight hardcopy delivery "via commercial carrier" by request for an additional $15.
(4) Personal delivery available in Lehigh or Northampton Counties by request. No charge.
(5) COD Appraisals paid with post-dated checks are held until the check clears.
(6) In the event a COD payment is not received in full by the day before it is due,
the appraisal may not be delivered until 9:00 AM of the SECOND business day following receipt of the payment. In this case, no late delivery discount applies.
(6) FHA Appraisals cannot be released (even verbally) without a written Case number.
(7) No new deliveries to individuals or companies until all 30+ day old invoices are paid in full.
(8) Turnaround guarantee does not apply if delivery is not received for the following reasons:
spam or other filters, firewalls, black listing or failure to white list,
redirection, inability of the computer operator to understand download procedures,
failure to download, incorrect delivery instructions included misspelled or incorrect email addresses,
automated reviews that can't be addressed or circumvented, etc.
In these cases, a call will be made to the client the next business day.
(9) This appraiser reserves the right to postpone the "start date" for purposes of determining the guaranteed turnaround based on workload. Call 610-442-6898 to confirm turnaround times.
(10) This appraiser reserves the right to take an extra business day to provide all original photos if necessary.
