Qualified Instructor: Professional Standards
Lee Lansford, IFA, is qualified by the national Appraisal Qualifications Board as a Certified Instructor of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (or, USPAP).
As of 6-10-2008, he is one of only 27 licensed appraisers in Illinois to hold this status!
Quoting from the Preamble of the USPAP:
“The purpose of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) is to promote and maintain a high level of public trust in appraisal practice by establishing requirements for appraisers. It is essential that appraisers develop and communicate their analyses, opinions, and conclusions to intended users of their services in a manner that is meaningful and not misleading. The AppraisalStandards Board promulgates USPAP for both appraisers and users of appraisal services.
The appraiser’s responsibility is to protect the overall public trust and it is the importance of the role of the appraiser that places ethical obligations on those who serve in this capacity. USPAP reflects the current standards of the appraisal profession.”
Appraisals completed by licensed appraisers in Illinois are obligated to comply with the requirements of the USPAP. Given this requirement, Mr. Lansford is particularly well-versed in the development and communication of appraisals that comply with professional standards of practice! As a user of an appraisal conducted by Lee Lansford, IFA, you can have confidence that the appraisal delivered to you complies with professional standards.
Further, Mr. Lansford has utilized his expertise in professional standards via his work as “investigator” (independent contractor; conduct reviews of appraisals for adherence—or lack thereof—to the professional standards of practice) on behalf of the regulatory branch of Illinois State Government responsible for the licensing of appraisers.
Lee Lansford, IFA, is well-qualified to serve you.
