Communication between Collateral Management and its Panel of Appraisers is a vital component to providing quality appraisal management. If complications arise regarding scheduling and/or deadlines, Collateral Management is to be notified immediately so we may communicate proper timelines to our clients
Please be aware, Collateral Management issues appraisal orders according to an appraiser performance rating system. Delinquent communication will reflect negatively on your performance rating, and may affect your role as a Panel member.
The fee being paid by our office, along with the expected delivery deadline, will be stated on each appraisal order. Please review the appraisal order thoroughly, as both the details of the property you are being asked to appraise and our client's requirements will be outlined. Appraisal orders are assigned based on geographic proximity of the panel member's office or the requested coverage areas in which the panel member has competent experience as it relates to the subject market area.
Accepting the appraisal order means you have accepted the fee and requirements outlined in the order. If at any time you have questions regarding your fee or cannot comply with the order requirements, please contact the Collateral Management office immediately so we may act accordingly.
Collateral Management asks that its panel members schedule an inspection appointment and communicate its status within 24 hours of accepting an order. This communication is important because it serves as the confirmation of order acceptance. This also allows Collateral Management to communicate the status of the appraisal request to our clients, which is integral in adhering to our high standard of appraisal management.
Completion and delivery of appraisal orders are expected to be both timely and accurate. The preferred turn time for accepted appraisal orders is three to five business days. If, at any time, circumstances do not allow you to meet the preferred turn time, please contact your Collateral Management representative immediately.
At no time does Collateral Management want our Panel of Appraisers to sacrifice the quality of their work in order to meet a previously agreed upon deadline. We understand turn times are often contingent on the complexity of the appraisal ordered. Collateral Management will always take into consideration your prompt communication of any possible delays and the requirements of the appraisal order when evaluating your performance rating.
