Course Summary

The seminar covers current legal and liability trends affecting appraisers and dispels some common myths and misunderstandings. Actual (and interesting) lawsuits and claims form the foundation of the seminar.

These are the types of questions answered by the seminar:

• Who is currently suing appraisers? What are they suing for?
• What are the most common errors that lead to lawsuits – for both commercial and residential appraisers?
• How do the USPAP concepts of intended use and user in an appraisal relate to an appraiser’s potential liability?
• How can an appraiser use these concepts to protect themselves against unwarranted liability based on recent case law?
• Will incorporating my appraisal firm protect me?
• What is the new “mass litigation” phenomenon that is affecting appraisers?
• What liability exposures exist for appraisal review work?
• What does E&O insurance cover?

Course Objectives

The objectives of the seminar are to educate appraisers about:

• The most common current sources and causes of professional negligence lawsuits against appraisers.
• The current mass litigation phenomenon affecting appraisers.
• How the USPAP concepts of client/intended user and intended use relate to legal claims against appraisers.
• How to handle common liability threat situations.
• The importance of the appraiser’s work file and what elements of the work file are most relevant to liability prevention.
• The role of professional liability insurance.

Course Instructor

The instructor is attorney Peter Christensen. He is the general counsel of LIA Administrators & Insurance Services, which provides professional liability insurance to 20,000 appraisers. LIA’s E&O insurance program for appraisers is endorsed by the Appraisal Institute.
