Due to lack of case law involving real estate appraiser malpractice, the court adopted malpractice standards applicable to professionals. It granted summary judgment to plaintiff. Finding that defendant never re-measured plaintiff’s property following the first appraisal and never re-inspected the premises for the third and fourth appraisals, the court determined that he negligently departed from good and accepted standard practices for appraisers.
