Starting January 2, 2014, new UAD requirements will take effect including updates to the reporting of Design(Style) and Garage/Carport.
For Design/Style, the appraiser must choose an attachment type from the below list of abbreviations:
|Abbreviated Entry||Attachment Type|
|DT||Detached Structure, does not share any communal walls, floor, or ceiling with another property|
|RT||Row or Townhouse – One in a row of identical houses or having a common wall; attached to another unit via common wall|
|GR||Garden – Structure is 1-3 stories tall, contains units with communal walls, floors, and/or ceilings|
|MR||Mid-Rise – Structure is 4-7 stories tall, contains units with communal walls, floors, and/or ceilings|
|HR||High Rise -Structure is 8+ stories tall, contains units with communal walls, floors, and/or ceilings|
When reporting Design(Style), the ‘Attachment Type’ is followed by the ‘Number of Levels’, and the ‘Description of Style’. A semicolon is used to separate the number of levels from the Description of the style. Note that no semicolon is used between the ‘Attachment Type’ and the ‘Number of Levels’.Examples:
