Appraiser

Appraiser

An appraiser (from Latin "appretiare", to value), is one who sets a value upon property,real or personal. In England the business of an appraiser is usually combined with that of an auctioneer, while theword itself has a similar meaning to that of "valuer." (See Auction, Valuation (finance).)

In the United States, the most common usage relates to real estate appraisals, while the term is often used to describe a person specially appointed by a judicial or quasi-judicial authority to put a valuation on property, "e.g." on the items of an inventory of the estate (law) of a deceased person or on land taken for public purposes by the right of eminent domain. Appraisers of imported goods and boards of general appraisers have extensive functions in administering the customs laws of the United States. Merchant appraisers are sometimes appointed temporarily under the revenue laws to value where there is no resident appraiser without holding the office of appraiser (U.S. Rev. Stats. § 2609).
