the fee was half what a normal or customary "pre AMC" fee would be!!
you have to establish minimum national fees for different reports
from the basic URAR to complex
it's not that hard or complicated
please remember AMC's are bleeding everyone not just the appraiser they are very similar to an organized crime tax or "protection fee"
