||McCart Appraisal has worked hard for its track record for completing competent and ethically superior appraisals. Contact us today to learn more.
There are also ethical duties that have nothing to do with clients and others. For example, appraisers must keep their work files for at least five years - at McCart Appraisal you can rest assured that we stick to that rule.
We demand the highest professional integrity possible from ourselves.
Working on orders based on contingency fees is not something we can consider.
In other words, we can't agree to do an appraisal report and collect payment on the contingency of the loan closing.
There's certainly a conflict of interest if an appraiser can report a greater value and then get paid more money!
We just don't do it.
Finally, the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice explicitly describes a violation in ethics as the acceptance of an assignment that is contingent on "the reporting of a pre-determined result (e.g., opinion of value)", "a direction in assignment results that favors the cause of the client", or "the amount of a value opinion" as well as other situations. We follow these rules to the letter which means you can be at ease knowing we are doing everything we can to get you an accurate home or property value.
When you request an appraisal from McCart Appraisal, we'll make sure you're getting the professional service you expect along with the business principles we're known for.
