Tell them they are NOT needed in the report.
The march of many appraisers who blindly comply with AMC & other lender ‘demands’ to INCLUDE YOUR E&O BINDER PAGE and FULL SIZE LICENSE COPY in every report.
Inclusion of your E&O Binder in reports is the quickest and easiest way to have your report challenged, and for you to be sued.
Why would you want to do that?
Inclusion of your license copy is absurd. Your license info is already in every single report you submit, or hadn’t you noticed that tidbit of info?
If AMC clerks tell you that you ‘must’ include these items, ask them if they already have those docs on file, which you should have given them BEFORE they gave you the assignment – or in the process of accepting a new assignment from a new AMC. Tell them they are not needed in the report. Those docs have absolutely nothing to do with mortgage loan underwriting, which is the purpose of the actual report. They most likely will back down. If they don’t – tell ‘em to find some other lesser experienced appraiser.
If a client other than an AMC requests those docs in a report, politely tell them that you’ll be happy to supply them outside the report itself, and be sure to let them know that you don’t want your extra personal info distributed to those you don’t know. If they still demand those items in the report – tell ‘em to find some other lesser experienced appraiser.
Take these items out of your templates, if you begin reports that way. Or do not include them if you use a prior report on a different property (merging) to build a new assignment.
Be professional in your actions running your own business. These requests are from amateurs. Quit playing that game.
