Self-Regulated Appraisal Profession
I have no bias with respect to the property that is the subject of this report or to the parties involved with this assignment.
Professional appraisers are trained to deflect any attempt to influence the appraisal or opinion of value, and to remain independent, impartial and objective. Since the appraiser has the sole responsibility for the analyses, opinions, and conclusions contained in the appraisal, his or her independence is a critical element to enhance the public trust that appraisals contain credible opinions of value. Appraisers complying with USPAP are required to maintain this level of independence, and to perform assignments without bias.
