* These legal documents must be written by an accredited, certified appraiser, one qualified in the field of the object to be appraised and knowledgeable in the legal, financial, and technical requirements of the appraisal. An appraiser should be an active member of an appraisal organization. Members are tested and accredited by their respective associations on a regular basis to insure the quality and reliability of their work. Appraisers who are not members of one of these associations are not reviewed or endorsed by such an authority.
Note: Personal property appraisers are not licensed and anyone may call himself an appraiser no matter what his qualifications or lack of them.
