    They have to use all of them, taken off "the list", they can not control who they use, that could encourage fraudulent activity.

    There is no way.. We as lenders order the appraisal through an appraisal management company... they then assign the appraiser. We have no say so, nor any communication with the appraisers until the actual appraisal comes in. This is a new Federal Law since 2010.

    Ask the lender. However, there will be more then one.

    Lenders have a list of appraisal companies that they use. They can't just use one. In addition, the lender usually has no say as to which appraisal company on the list will be use. They are picked at random.
