First of all, it's important to note that accepting any assignment with a request from a client who "wants the value increased" could potentially be a violation of the ETHICS RULE in USPAP. It's important to ensure the client understands you're unable to make any representations regarding the opinion of value until you have performed the assignment.
With respect to the request to "recertify" an appraisal, that is actually referring to performing an update of a prior appraisal. Please refer to Advisory Opinion 3, Update of a Prior Appraisal, for guidance on how to perform such assignments.
