Once the appraiser signs off their write-up of the appraisal meeting, an automatic email is sent to the appraisee informing them that the appraiser has signed off the appraisal.
The appraisee then needs to log in to FourteenFish, check the summary and your comments before signing off the appraisal themselves.
Modifying something in the appraisal after appraiser sign off
If the appraisee wants to clarify something, or request a modification, then they can send a message to their appraiser from the sign off page instead of signing off the appraisal.
The appraiser is then sent an email notification about this, and the appraisal is reopened for the appraiser to change anything and respond then sign off again.
After final sign off by the appraisee
Once the appraisee has signed off their appraisal, the appraisal will be marked as completed and locked down. The appraiser will receive an email notification about this.
The appraiser, appraiser and responsible officer will continue to have access to the locked down summary and files on FourteenFish.
Depending on the designated body set for the appraisal, the appraisal summary will then either be transferred automatically to the appraisal service or the appraiser can send them a summary manually. The appraiser will be informed as to which is the case at the time.
