  • Check in begins at 2:45pm

This presentation is focused on the legal aspects of alleged discrimination in appraising. The goals are to inform participants – primarily appraisers – about the relevant laws, theories of liability, and causes and markers of potential claims concerning discrimination in appraising for lending services. Learners will be able to:

  • Understand the key laws that exist with respect to alleged discrimination in appraising, both residential & commercial.
  • Understand how Fair Housing Act claims & Equal Credit Opportunity Act claims are brought & to whom these laws apply.
  • Recognize what may constitute potential evidence of discrimination in a legal setting.
  • By hearing real-world claim examples, understand the HUD complaint process with respect to its investigation of allegations of discrimination and understand the separate legal process within the courts.
  • Understand that current allegations of discrimination in appraising are not limited to allegations about low valuations & that other subjects of potential discrimination are being scrutinized, such as availability & pricing of valuation services.
  • Consider improvements that can be made to decrease risk of discrimination and claims involving discrimination.

Business Practices & Ethics (6 CE Hours) @ via Zoom
Mar 8 @ 8:15 am – 3:30 pm
  • Check in begins at 8:15am

  • Class starts at 8:30am                

  • Instructor: Mary Fox, MAI

Business Practices and Ethics is an important course that provides information about standards and ethics requirements for valuers in general and, more specifically, for valuers who belong to the Appraisal Institute. Through discussion questions and examples, the class compares behavior and actions that illustrate violations of the Code of Professional Ethics, and participants learn how referrals can be made. Participants are also introduced to the Appraisal Institute Guide Notes to the Standards of Professional Practice and use these Guide Notes to resolve everyday appraisal practice problems. At the end of the course, they learn about common errors in appraisal reports and review reports, and they respond to questions about challenges that arise in appraisal practice such as requests for updates and requests to change or add intended users. These are common business practice issues that appraisers encounter in various assignments, including mortgage lending, litigation, and property tax appeal. Other real-life scenarios in the course illustrate less common business practice issues such as an appraiser’s obligation when illegal or criminal behavior is observed.


When you register, either choose to download the materials or have them shipped directly to you. (There are no materials for the January bias seminar.)  Make sure you have downloaded class materials PRIOR to class.  If you order (and ship) printed materials to you, make sure they arrive 1 week prior to class.
