We understand that you have worked hard to get your business license and if that is being called into question, working with an attorney may be your best solution. There are many reasons someone in your position may have their appraisers business license called into question:

  • Substance abuse. If an appraiser was under the influence of drugs or alcohol while making an appraisal, someone may say that the appraisal could not have been done correctly or with the right judgment. 
  • There was a conflict of interest. If the appraiser accepted some sort of payment, monetary or otherwise, so that they would report a certain number on their appraisal value, this is considered a conflict of interest. Another example would be if the appraiser knows the person they are appraising for. 
  • Discrimination occurred. If the appraiser made a certain evaluation that was not based on the property but was based on other factors, like the property owner’s age, sex, race, religion, or sexual preference, then they discriminated against the property owner. 
  • There was incorrect information. If the appraiser deceived the property owner into thinking certain factors would elevate or decrease the property amount to benefit or hurt someone else, this would be considered fraud. 
  • The appraiser did a drive-by. If the appraiser gave a completely wrong appraisal value to a property because they only checked on the property from the outside and never went inside, their methods may be called into question.

There are many ways that an appraiser may have their license called into question. If you have been accused of any of the following, speaking with Montana appraisers’ business license lawyers can help you. 

Is it possible to have these allegations withdrawn? 

Just because your license is called into question and you are facing potentially losing it does not mean that this is the end. In fact, you may have the best opportunity at keeping your license if you fight against these allegations with the help of an attorney.

What if someone is questioning an appraisal? 

Especially if you gave a low value to a property, the property owners may come back and say that the property should be valued higher.
