South Dakota Chapter | Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions Yellow Book Course

Starts:  Oct 2, 2023 08:00 AM (MT)
Ends:  Oct 4, 2023 05:00 PM (MT)

This course is based on the Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions (Yellow Book), sixth edition. In updating these Standards, the Interagency Land Acquisition Conference, incorporated relevant new appraisal methodology and theory, integrated new case law, and ensured appropriate consistency with professional appraisal standards. The content is restructured and revised for clarity and readability, resulting in practical and understandable guidance for appraisers, attorneys, and the public.

The first three sections, Appraisal Development, Appraisal Reporting, and Appraisal Review, parallel The Appraisal Foundation’s Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) STANDARD 1: Real Property Appraisal Development, STANDARD 2: Real Property Appraisal, Reporting, and STANDARD 3: Appraisal Review, Development and Reporting. The Yellow Book’s Section 4, Legal Foundations for Appraisal Standards, explains the legal foundations for the previous sections.
