AI Exposure Draft of the Proposed Guide Note: Arbitration

Arbitration is a form of dispute resolution. In arbitration, the parties to a dispute agree to present their case to one or more arbitrators who then render a final, and usually binding, decision to resolve the dispute. Clients often retain real estate valuation professionals ("Valuer" or "Valuers") to provide services in arbitration matters as either arbitrators or expert witnesses.

Both real estate valuation professionals and their clients would benefit from guidance concerning the following questions:
  • What services can a real estate valuation professional provide in an arbitration matter; and
  • What valuation standards and ethical rules, if any, apply to an arbitration matter?
The Professional Standards and Guidance Committee (PSGC) developed a proposed Guide Note that provides guidance relating to arbitration that can be useful for both valuation professionals and their clients.  The Preamble to the Appraisal Institute Code of Professional Ethics and Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice states that Guide Notes are not part of the Standards but provide guidance on how the Standards may apply to specific issues.

The Board of Directors directed distribution of an Exposure Draft of the proposed Guide Note on arbitration to Designated Members, Candidates, Practicing Affiliates and Affiliates for review and comment.  Click here to view proposed Guide Note.  If you have any comments on the Exposure Draft, please send your comments via e-mail to Comments sent to this e-mail address will be compiled for distribution to and review by the PSGC and the Board of Directors.  The deadline for submission of comments is July 5, 2016.

The PSGC will consider the comments received and decide whether to recommend to the Board of Directors any revisions to the Exposure Draft. The Board then will consider whether to adopt the proposed Guide Note as presented in the Exposure Draft, to adopt a revision of the proposed Guide Note or to take some other action.
