The Appraisal Process

As a result of the Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC) that was adopted in early 2009, a property appraisal can no longer be ordered by anyone directly involved in the origination of a mortgage application. This is done to ensure that any final value in the appraisal will not be improperly influenced by any parties involved in the origination of the loan.

California Credit Union will order, for both purchasing and refinancing properties, an appraisal through an independent appraisal management company.

Appraisals must be paid upfront by the member, via Visa®/MasterCard® or through direct withdrawal from the member's checking or savings account.

A copy of the appraisal will be provided to you. No refunds will be given once the appraisal has been ordered.

In today's market, and at the underwriter's discretion, an Appraisal Review is common. An Appraisal Review, if required, must also be paid upfront and no refunds will be given once it has been ordered.

Property Insurance

If you have a home loan or home equity line of credit with our credit union, you may be required to provide evidence of continuous insurance coverage.

Proving Proof of Insurance

We have partnered with Insurance Services (Allied Solutions) to track and verify insurance coverage. If you have received a letter from Insurance Services asking for verification of insurance, you may update your insurance information online.

You may also provide your proof insurance via telephone, fax, email, or regular mail using the contact information provided in your notification letter. For more information, please contact Insurance Services at (800)-334-8788.
