Completion of this year’s Standing Instructions Online Module is compulsory for Valuers undertaking residential valuation on bank panels using the API PropertyPRO and Restricted Assessment report format. 

Lenders require Valuers to complete the elearning module by 31 Dec 2018. Please be aware that the API offices will be closed 5.00 pm 24 December 2018 until 6 January 2018 – offices reopen at 9.00 am on 7 January 2018.

Valuers who seek or wish to maintain their appointment to a Lender’s residential panel must complete the module before they can commence panel valuation work for 2019.
