The Appraisal Standards Board has issued the September Q&As for the 2016-17 edition of Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. The Q&As address using drones in appraisal inspections and Restricted Appraisal Reports concerning multiple parties. The two main points made are:
- Use of a drone does NOT constitute a personal inspection if the appraiser is not visiting the property at the same time.
- Multiple parties acting as co-clients can engage an appraiser and each view a Restricted Appraisal Report.
