Birmingham-May 15-"UAD Aftereffects: Efficiency vs Obligation"-Mark Smeltzer, SRA

Attend this seminar now and learn everything about avoiding “hardstop” errors, UAD callbacks, and “stips” due to non-compliance. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are tightening up on reports sent through the Uniform Collateral Data Portal, and in 2013 are no longer passing through appraisal reports that formerly were allowed. Consequently, lenders and their agents are stepping up their enforcement of the UAD and nonUAD rules.   (If you don’t understand the definition of a “hardstop” or “rules” you really need to attend this seminar.)

You may think this seminar is a rehash of the Appraisal Institute's first Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD) seminar, but it’s not! You may think you’re too busy to attend, but really, you can't afford to miss it!
