Question about simple SQL query

I am trying to only get records back when the inspector (lbal_inspectedby) is not the same as any of the inspectors in the query.  So,

SELECT * FROM LBAppraisalLocation WHERE lbal_appraisalid=xxxx AND lbal_inspectedby IS NOT THE SAME AS ANY OF THE OTHERS?????

So if the table looked like this
ID    lbal_appraisalid     lbal_inspectedby
1     4000                     2
2     4000                     14
3     4000                     2

then my query should only return
ID    lbal_appraisalid     lbal_inspectedby
1     4000                     2
2     4000                     14

How can I do this?

                       and i.lbal_inspectedby = l.lbal_inspectedby

SELECT DISTINCT(lbal_inspectedby), *  WHERE Lbal_appraisalid=@appraisalid FROM LBAppraisalLocation
