Want to Avoid 12 Common USPAP Violations? Read this!

The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) are the quality control standards applicable for real property and business valuation appraisals. What you may not know are the most common USPAP violations. This list below includes the most frequently encountered violations by TALCB's staff appraiser-investigations when investigating complaints filed with the Board. With this insight, you will be able to communicate more effectively in your appraisal report and successfully avoid missteps when completing an appraisal assignment.

I am a buyer or seller of a property that was recently appraised and would like a copy of the appraisal. Can you help?

NO. The appraiser can only give a copy of the appraisal to the appraiser’s client, who is the person or entity who asked the appraiser to conduct the appraisal. In many cases, the appraiser’s client is a lending institution. If you are not the appraiser’s client, you may ask the client for a copy of the appraisal, but the client is not required to give it to you.

How do I obtain copies of appraiser files that are in TALCB’s possession?

Under the Texas Public Information Act, most government records are available to the public if requested in writing. A request for copies of any TALCB records or documents must be submitted to TALCB in writing. For your convenience, you can submit a public information request by submitting the Public Information Request Form or emailing your request to public.information@trec.texas.gov. Certain exceptions may apply, and there may be a cost to obtain copies of the records depending on the volume of records you request.
