NCUA Changes Appraisal Regulation
The National Credit Union Administration is changing the regulation requiring real estate appraisals for certain commercial real estate transactions.

The NCUA Board of Directors approved a rule that amends the agency's real estate appraisal requirements for certain transactions as part of the NCUA's regulatory reform agenda. The final rule:

--Increases the threshold for required appraisals in commercial real estate transactions from the current $250,000 to $1 million;
--Reorganizes the appraisal regulation to make it easier to determine when a written estimate or an appraisal is required;
--Exempts real estate transactions located in rural areas from appraisal requirements if certain conditions are met; and
--Amends the definitions section of the rule to reflect these changes.

The final rule will become effective 90 days after publication in the Federal Register.
