FHA Home Loan Appraisal Requirements
by Megan from Moreno Valley, California USA
FHA Home Loan Appraisal Requirements Kate, We close on a house in a week and the FHA home loan lender tacked on $4600 for lender required repairs. We had the appraisal done but now the lender is saying they aren't requiring the repairs.
Is it required by FHA to have window screens on all windows? And I read that on heating and A/C units there has to be at least 2 years of remaining life left. Our A/C unit was vandalized. All they left was the shell.
Are these things that FHA requires to be repaired prior to closing?
Regarding FHA Home Loan Appraisal Requirements
Hi Megan, For these types of questions, you need specific and reliable answers from someone with an in-depth understanding of your situation. I am going to suggest three sources related to your FHA home loan.
1- Your real estate agent who is probably familiar with the nuts and bolts of an FHA home loan
in your area
2- Your mortgage professional who can discuss your concerns regarding the FHA appraisal
and home inspection (you had one, right
?) with the underwriter approving FHA mortgage loans
3- HUD's At Home With FHA
where homeowners discover solutions to challenges specific to FHA home loans
