FDIC Announces Appraisal and Evaluation Deferral Option

In response to COVID-19, the FDIC issued an interim final rule to temporarily defer real estate-related appraisals and evaluations for up to 120 days after closing of residential or commercial real estate loan transactions. Transactions involving acquisition, development and construction of real estate are excluded from this interim rule.

Please click to read the Interagency Statement and Interim Final Rule. The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) is expected to pass a similar proposal.

The Interim Final Rule states that “While appraisals and evaluations can be deferred, the agencies expect institutions to use best efforts and available information to develop a well-informed estimate of the collateral value of the subject property.”
