This seminar provides an overview of appraiser liability issues and best ways for appraisers to prevent liability claims. The seminar covers the current liability trends affecting appraisers and dispels some common myths and misunderstandings. Actual lawsuits and claims form the foundation of the program.

Who sues appraisers? What do they sue for? How does the concept of intended user in an appraisal relate to an appraiser's potential liability? Can an appraiser be sued more than five years after the appraisal - i.e., what are the relevant statutes of limitation? How long should an appraiser keep a work file? What should go in a work file to help the appraiser in defense of a lawsuit? What liability exposures exist for appraisal review work? What does E&O insurance cover? These are the types of questions answered by the seminar.
