REVALIDATION - THE PROCESS
All appraisals are managed through the online Revalidation Management System. The LAT will allocate an appraiser to you and you will be asked to get in touch to arrange an appraisal appointment. You may use the same appraiser three times in any 5 year cycle.
You may continue to use whichever system of information collection that you choose (this is true at the time of writing this). There has been some misunderstanding. You are NOT confined to Clarity or MAG. However, only certain summary appraisals will be acceptable for uploading to the RMS.
If you are not using Clarity, MAG or other revalidation-dedicated electronic system, you and your appraiser may find this pre-appraisal form useful. Your appraiser will advise you what to do about the summary appraisal.
