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.
