The Comment to Standards Rule 2-3 in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) states, in part:
"An appraiser who signs any part of the appraisal report, including a letter of transmittal, must also sign this certification.
In an assignment that includes only assignment results developed by the real property appraiser(s), any appraiser(s) who signs a certification accepts full responsibility for all elements of the certification, for the assignment results, and for the contents of the appraisal report."
Since each appraiser signing the certification accepts full responsibility, an appraiser signing the certification should not be identified as providing significant real property appraisal assistance.
