Frequently Asked Questions

Can you use an appraisal I already have?

We may be able to use an appraisal ordered by another lender, however we will not be able to use an appraisal ordered independently by yourself. Our quality control policies prohibit us from accepting an appraisal from another lender that has been produced by an Appraisal Management Company (AMC) that is not on our pre-approved Appraisers List. Empire’s AMC appraisers will complete the assignment within stated timelines and be a true representation of current market value for the subject property.
