STANDARD 8

(ii)

state the intended use of the appraisal;

85

Comment: The intended use of the appraisal must be consistent with the limitation on use of the

Restricted Appraisal Report option in this Standards Rule (i.e., client use only).

(iii) state information sufficient to identify the property involved in the appraisal;

(iv) state the property interest appraised;

(v)

state the type of value and cite the source of its definition;

86

Comment: When an opinion of reasonable exposure time has been developed in compliance with

Standards Rule 7-2(c), the opinion must be stated in the report.

(vi) state the effective date of the appraisal and the date of the report;

87

Comment: The effective date of the appraisal establishes the context for the value opinion, while the

date of the report indicates whether the perspective of the appraiser on the market and property as of

the effective date of the appraisal was prospective, current, or retrospective.

(vii) state the scope of work used to develop the appraisal;

88

Comment: Because the client’s reliance on an appraisal may be affected by the scope of work, the

report must enable them to be properly informed and not misled. Sufficient information includes

disclosure of research and analyses performed and might also include disclosure of research and

analyses not performed.

When any portion of the work involves significant personal property appraisal assistance, the appraiser

must state the extent of that assistance. The name(s) of those providing the significant personal

property appraisal assistance must be stated in the certification, in accordance with Standards Rule

8-3.

89

(viii) state the appraisal methods and techniques employed, state the value opinion(s) and conclusion(s)

reached, and reference the workfile; exclusion of the sales comparison approach, cost approach, or

income approach must be explained;

90

Comment: An appraiser must maintain a specific, coherent workfile in support of a Restricted Appraisal

Report. The contents of the workfile must include sufficient information to indicate that the appraiser

complied with the requirements of STANDARD 7 and for the appraiser to produce an Appraisal Report.

Information analyzed in compliance with Standards Rule 7-5 is significant information that must be

disclosed in a Restricted Appraisal Report. If such information was unobtainable, a statement on

the efforts undertaken by the appraiser to obtain the information is required. If such information is

irrelevant, a statement acknowledging the existence of the information and citing its lack of relevance

is required.

(ix) state, as appropriate to the class of personal property involved, the use of the property existing as

of the date of value and the use of the property reflected in the appraisal;

Comment: In the context of personal property, value can be a function of the current and alternative

use of the subject property, the choice of the appropriate market or market level for the type of item,

the type and definition of value, and intended use of the report.
