On June 1, 2014, the VA required that all appraisal reports uploaded to them be in the MISMO 2.6 GSE format. Previously, the VA still required PDF copies of your appraisal reports.
All Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) appraisals will be processed in WebLGY under the VA Appraisal Management System (AMS). Therefore, beginning June 1, 2014, all VA appraisals must be uploaded in WebLGY in Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO) compliant XML 2.6 GSE file format as VA will no longer accept appraisals uploaded in WebLGY in PDF format. Prior to June 1, 2014, VA appraisals must continue to be uploaded in WebLGY in PDF file format.

Because TOTAL has DataCourier built in, you don't have to do anything extra. In fact, you've probably used DataCourier before to deliver to other clients who already required the XML format. For detailed instruction on delivering your report via DataCourier, click here and choose Option 3. For instructions on uploading your XML file to the VA's WebLGY system, click here.
If you need assistance uploading to the VA's WebLGY portal, you will need to contact the VA. Our support technicians are unable to assist you with that step of the process.
