Session Description

This session will address the issues that appraisers continuously face in their appraisal practice, particularly those issues of the more litigious nature such as divorce. Topics include covering your professional liability in assignment agreements, and tips on determining who your client is. Several ethical questions will be addressed such as future assignments with the property that you have appraised, sharing drafts with your client before you have been paid, and citing sources in your appraisals without pre-approvals. Strategic compromises and "the fraud triangle theory" will also be discussed. Personal Property appraiser Lela Hersh, ASA will pose questions to Business Valuation appraiser Jeffrey W. Brend, ASA. Brend is an attorney, financial specialist and a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
