Dealing with Appraisals: Regulations and Requirements

Date: Thursday February 21st 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CT | Cost: $265 and 2.5 CE Credits

Dealing with Appraisals: Regulations and Requirements

The past few years have seen significant developments in real estate appraisals and evaluation rules and regulations. Revised Interagency Guidelines and new rules under Reg Z have been issued, and we've seen additional requirements finalized recently due to Dodd-Frank. In some cases (called "flipping transactions"), lenders will even have to obtain two appraisals on the same property for one loan.

Because breakdowns in appraisal practices have been partly blamed for the mortgage crisis, regulators have raised their expectations; lenders' appraisal and evaluation programs must include more elements than ever before. Some themes now emphasized by the agencies are independence of the appraiser, and evaluator, reviews, and qualifications.

There are also restrictions against using AVMs (automated valuation models), BPOs (broker price opinions), and tax valuations that have upset many in the industry.

Do you know the requirements? We'll provide in-depth details of the appraisal and valuation process, from both the lender and appraiser side of the game, to provide a thorough understanding of what is required and what you need.

Covered topics:

- CFPB mortgage regulations under Reg Z - additional requirements for certain loan types
- Regulations and Interagency Guidelines - requirements for lenders and brokers
- Clarified independence requirements and their importance to examiners
- The many forms of appraisals and evaluations - what can you use and when? AVMs and BPOs aren't what they used to be
- Can you accept a previous appraisal? Dealing with "readdressed" and "transferred" appraisals
- USPAP rules and standards - how do appraiser rules influence what lenders must do?
- How to achieve appraiser independence - you've got to prove it
- Anti-coercion and undue influence provisions of Reg Z - what can you NOT do (or say)?

Who Should Attend: Real estate lenders, compliance officers, auditors, underwriters, appraisers (in-house or external), closing agents, management, and anyone else involved in the real estate or residential lending process with a need to understand the current state of appraisal regulation and requirements.
