Free LIA/READI 4-Hour CE Seminar in East Brunswick, NJ on December 14, 2011

READI and LIA are presenting their 4-hour live CE seminar entitled "Loss Prevention Program for Real Estate Appraisers" on December 14, 2011 in East Brunswick, NJ.   The seminar is free to all appraisers who are either registered with READI or insured by LIA.  (LIA is the state-approved provider and the NJ code # is 2011-29500000.  See note below for additional state approvals.)

Who sues the most appraisers? What do they sue for? Which lenders pose the most risk to appraisers? Who is more at risk: residential or commercial appraisers? Which AMCs have sued appraisers for indemnification? You'll get the answers at the seminar and, of course, 4 hours of CE credit. 

As LIA's general counsel and READI's director, I will be the presenter. The seminar addresses legal claims and issues affecting both residential and commercial real estate appraisers. The information is based on actual claims and lawsuits filed against appraisers. In addition to the interesting facts involved in many of the cases, the seminar provides specific instruction about how appraisers can minimize their risk of being sued and about how to be prepared for such an event if it happens.

Appraisers insured through LIA's E&O  program with Liberty Mutual become eligible for a one-time discount on their E&O premium of either $25 or $50 depending on their level of coverage by completing the class.

The location of the seminar is the Days Hotel, 195 Route 18 South, East Brunswick, New Jersey 08816. Class sign-in starts at 8:00 a.m. The class will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m.

Appraisers who are registered as members of READI (www.readimember.org) or insured by LIA may register for the seminar by email to class@readimember.org.  Space will be given in order of RSVP.
