Christmas Party Education-12/1/17-“Hot Topics & Myths in Appraiser Liability”-3-Hrs
The seminar covers current liability trends affecting appraisers and dispels some common myths and misunderstandings. Actual lawsuits and claims form the foundation of the program.

These are the types of questions answered by the seminar: Who is currently suing appraisers? What do they sue for? What are the most common errors that lead to lawsuits? How do the USPAP concepts of intended use and user in an appraisal relate to an appraiser’s potential liability? Based on recent case law, how can an appraiser use these concepts to protect themselves against unwarranted liability? What is the new “mass litigation” phenomenon that is affecting appraisers? What liability exposures exist for appraisal review work? What does E&O insurance cover?

Instructor:Peter Christensen, General Counsel of LIA Administrators & Insurance Services, which provides professional liability insurance to about 20,000 appraisers.
