Fundamentals of the Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions


The purpose of the seminar is to provide information to independent fee appraisers and agency personnel about rules for appraising federal land acquisitions, as outlined in the federal guidelines known as the Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisition (UASFLA). It is designed to introduce you to the large market for these appraisal services created by the federal government, and it illustrates the special needs and requirements of that market segment. The seminar is not a “law” seminar. When court cases and decisions are discussed in the content, or indicated in the UASFLA, it is done in the context of their significance in the appraisal process; it is not to be construed as conveying legal advice or expressing legal opinions.
