FULLY 100% Compliant - Fannie Mae Appraiser Independence Requirements

Lincoln Appraisal & Settlement Services Statement of Appraiser Independence Compliance:

Fannie Mae has publicly replaced the Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC) for loans as of October 15th, 2010 with new Appraiser Independence Requirements. Lincoln Appraisal & Settlement Services is pleased to confirm our compliance with all aspects of the Appraiser Independence Requirements and we ensure appraiser independence in all our business operations:

  • All Lincoln Appraisal & Settlement Services' corporate policies and procedures fulfill Appraiser Independence Requirements.
  • All Lincoln Appraisal & Settlement Services employees have been educated and are certified in the Appraiser Independence Requirements process.

All appraisal reports obtained and delivered by Lincoln Appraisal & Settlement Services will be in compliance with the Uniform Standards of Appraisal Practice (USPAP), Fannie Mae, FHA, FIRREIA and all state guidelines as applicable. Our company believes the replacement of the HVCC with the Appraiser Independence Requirements will continue to enhance public and government confidence in the appraisal process.

As one of the country's leading Appraisal Management Companies, we also use a large and talented network of dedicated independent appraisers who share our philosophy of appraiser independence and Appraiser Independence compliance. Additionally, it is our privilege to continually engage and educate our expansive client base in the practices of the Appraiser Independence Requirements.



The foundation for all successful business partnerships is trust.
