Dealing with a Subpoena

Apr 02, 2021

As an appraiser, you don’t have to be sued or be facing a lawsuit to find yourself on the receiving end of a subpoena.

Appraisers are often subpoenaed in legal disputes involving third parties, usually being tied to the dispute for no other reason than having appraised a property involved in the dispute. If the appraiser is not a party to the lawsuit, then typically they are being subpoenaed for documents and/or being called as an expert witness, sometimes without pay, to testify regarding a past appraisal.
