No. Appraisers do not have to pay to appraise an appraisee on the website.
How will I know when an Appraisal is ready?
Once an appraisee signs off their appraisal you will be emailed. If you have already linked to your appraisee following the steps above then the email will be sent to the address you registered with.

You can visit the Appraiser's Area by clicking on the Appraiser Area icon from your Dashboard.
Preparing for an Appraisal
Once the appraisee has submitted their appraisal to you, you will be able to access all their appraisal preparation material. The appraisee can also give you early access so that you can view this before it is formally submitted to you.
The appraisal preparation page will give you a guide as to what you have left to complete until you can sign off the appraisal.
You can enter information before the appraisal in preparation. The appraisee cannot see this information until you sign off the appraisal. The exception to this is the PDP, which you can work on together.
Sign off process
Once you have signed off the appraisal the appraisee can no longer update the appraisal information and they can review what you have entered. At this stage they can message you back to clarify or ask something. If they do this the appraisal is re-opened for you both to update the information if relevant. Once you have both signed the appraisal off it is permanently locked. More information on the sign off process is on the appraisal preparation page.
