Appraisal reports completed by Edward M. Stanley Appraisal
Services conform to the highest possible standards and ethics.
Clients can rely on our strict confidentiality, and all objects
are appraised in an unbiased, objective manner, independent
of outside influence.
The fees charged for reports are based solely on the time
spent in appraising the property and are never associated
with the value of the property. All of our appraisal work
strictly conforms to the Uniform Standards of Professional
Appraisal Practice, the Code of Ethics of the Appraisers Association
of America and Internal Revenue Service guidelines and regulations
as described below:
Association of America, Inc.
Association of America, founded in 1949, is the oldest
non-profit professional association of personal property appraisers
and is dedicated to advancing ethics and knowledge in the
field of appraisal. With an international membership base,
the Association is based in New York City and, through its
Code of Ethics, sets stringent standards for its members for
completeness of appraisal reports and ethical responsibility.
Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP)
USPAP constitutes the appraisal standards promulgated by the
Foundation of Washington, D.C., on behalf of appraisers
and users of appraisal services. The Foundation is a non-profit
organization authorized by Congress as the source of appraisal
standards and appraiser qualifications. Revised and published
annually, USPAP governs many appraisal issues and concerns
including ethics, confidentiality, and the development and
completion of appraisals.
