Guide to the New Appraisal Code Price with shipping elsewhere
Despite raising many legal questions, a new appraisal code becomes effective for single-family mortgages—excluding government-insured loans—that are originated on or after May 1, 2009 and delivered to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
Under the code, lenders and any third party acting on their behalf are prohibited from influencing or attempting to influence an appraisal through coercion, extortion, collusion, compensation, inducement, intimidation, bribery or any other form of pressure. The code adds another layer of compliance requirements to existing GSE and federal appraisal regulations.
Get all the details about the appraisal code in a new report from Inside Mortgage Finance Publications called Guide to the New Appraisal Code (the GSE Home Valuation Code of Conduct). It contains everything you need to know about this new rule and how it will impact mortgage industry players.
