Are you USPAP certified?

The expression “USPAP Certified Appraiser” and/or “USPAP Certified Appraisal” is misleading. There is no such credential. In fact, USPAP states that there is no such certification or designation. Completing a USPAP course does not entitle one to be USPAP Certified, nor does it permit to call oneself a USPAP Certified Appraiser. The amount and quality of information included in a report and the competence and ethics with which the appraisal was prepared are what allows the appraisal report compliant with USPAP. Not all appraisers or firms providing appraisals comply with USPAP.
