Thank you for contacting theĀ Appraisal Complaint National Hotline.

The Hotline is an information resource to help complainants determine the appropriate legal authority to receive their complaint involving allegations of non-compliance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) or appraisal independence requirements.

How it works:

You may contact the Hotline through the website, email, or call center. The Hotline provides referral information to complainants based on responses to a series of questions and drop-down menu selections. The complainant is provided with agency contact information for filing of a complaint. The website also offers tools and resources to enable complainants to determine the nature of their complaint, as well as other helpful information. If you seek to file a complaint against more than one party, proceed with a separate referral request for each party.

The Hotline includes:

  • This website with an online email and complaint referral process
  • Toll free number: 877-739-0096


The Hotline will:

  • Refer complainants to the appropriate legal authority to receive complaints of alleged non-compliance with USPAP, or appraisal independence standards, including improper influencing or attempted improper influencing of appraisers or the appraisal process.
