Rejected is a harsh word.  Maybe a better word is "not accepted?"  Rejecting an appraiser is not always an easy thing to do, but it is a MUST if they aren't competent to perform the assignment.  Notice the word "compentent."  I use that word because that's the precise word, according to a fellow ...
