With low interest rates, continued strength of the refinance market, and several other factors, the appraisal waiver option offered by the GSEs has come into focus in recent months. Appraisal waivers offer many benefits for both the lender and the consumer, but they can also lead to some thorny issues, especially with some cash-out refinances. Join the Compliance Essentials program and industry experts as we explore appraisal waiver options, appraiser independence rules and all of the potential issues, risk, liability, legal issues, and best practices.
