+ 05-22-2018 - ICAP Signed A Letter To The Chairman of the Appraisal Subcommittee

The letter states that if there was one clear takeaway from the comments received by the ASC during the TriStar Bank appraiser waiver process, it is that numerous appraisers were ready and willing to provide TriStar with the appraisal services they experienced difficulty obtaining on their own.  Additionally the letter states that these organizations can work within their respective states to inform appraisers of the need of the financial institutions and encourage qualified individuals to reach out and offer their services.

+ 04-11-2018 - ICAP Joined 25 Organizations in Opposition to the Appraisal Waiver Request From TriStar Bank

The letter expressed ICAP's strong opposition to the waiver request sought by TriStar Bank, and stated that "not only that there is NO shortage of appraisers in the Nashville MSA which TriStar lends in, but that the broad impact of the granting of a waiver in this MSA would be catastrophic in its impact to the overall safety and soundness of the underlying lending transactions and the broader public trust". The letted urged the Subcommittee to deny TriStar’s application.

+ 04-11-2018 - The Appraisal Institute Writes a Letter in Favor of ICAP's Statute of Limitations Bill

+ 03-19-2018 - ICAP signed a letter addressed to Mike Crapo, Chairman of the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs

The letter states that reducing appraisal requirements increases risks to the taxpayers, who stand behind FDIC-insured institutions. The letter encourages the Committee on Banking to examine adherence to existing safety and soundness regulations by financial institutions and the underlying business and regulatory environment of real estate appraisers, finding ways to make the appraisal regulatory structure more efficient and attractive to the next generation of appraisers.

+ 03-17-2018 - ICAP Participates in a letter with the Network of State Appraiser Organizations regarding TriStar’s Temporary Waiver Request

The letter states that TriStar’s Temporary Waiver Request is a shocking attempt to sidestep one of the most basic and integral safeguards for housing and the economy at large: verifying and certifying the value of the collateral that is securing a mortgage.  Further, the letter contends that the ASC’s authority to “temporarily waive certification or licensing requirements” in a particular area should not be provided in order to make it more convenient for a lender to conduct its business or resolve issues which arise from its business practices.
