NAIFA Weighs In on Appraisal Threshold Issue

The OCC, Board, and FDIC are conducting a review of the regulations they have issued in order to identify outdated or otherwise unnecessary regulatory requirements imposed on insured depository institutions, as required by the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996 (EGRPRA). EGRPRA requires the Agencies to organize the regulations into categories and publish groups of categories for comment. In a notice published in the Federal Register on December 23, 2015, the Agencies are seeking public comment on regulations in the following categories: Rules of Procedure; Safety and Soundness; and Securities. 

Click here to view the December 23 Federal Register notice seeking stakeholder comments on several appraisal rules  (including the appraisal threshold issue).  Comments are due by March 22, 2016. 

NAIFA has already submitted written comments on this issue, strongly opposing a threshold increase.  Our letter to CFPB Director Cordray advises him of the Agencies’ clearly stated interest in considering a threshold increase and asks him what specific steps he intends to take pursuant to Dodd-Frank and when to review any such action.  Our letter cites the statements of FDIC officials showing their interest in a threshold increase and urges that the Bureau intervene in the process now.  NAIFA members are encouraged to review the issue and express your thoughts directly to the responsible Federal Agencies.
