Real Estate Valuation Task Force
The Real Estate Valuation Task Force Act (20 ILCS 4113) was created pursuant to Public Act 102-934, to directly address discrimination in valuation of real estate and underwriting of loans in racially diverse or ethnic communities.
The Task Force is set to identify racial disparities in the valuation of the real estate used for underwriting loans, and the causes of those disparities. As a result, it is specifically charged with conducting an analysis of collateral underwriting standards; standards of appraisals and alternative evaluations such as automated valuation models; procedures for reconsiderations of value by consumers; and guidance related to collateral underwriting challenges, such as energy efficient housing and limited or inactive markets.
The Task Force is also asked to evaluate the barriers of entry into the appraisal profession.
The Task Force shall publish a report of its findings and recommended actions to the Governor and General Assembly by January 1, 2025.
