A VA loan can be refinanced into a conventional loan. Some lenders have streamline no appraisal products and programs. Its always best practice to consult with your mortgage consultant.

Andrew basically nailed it. I would be shocked if the appraisal trasnfered. VA appraisals are slightly different then conventional appraisals. Bottom line, even if you stick with the same lender I see no way around having a new appraisal done. But you should ask your lender and see what he or she says.

Every lender is different, but most of the time you can change the loan from one to another, however the underwriting process has to start all over,since the guidelines are different.
Whether the same appraisal can be used is solely up to your lender. Before they used to let us switch the appraisal, now with the new (dumb) rules, they might made you re-do the appraisal.
Either way you need to talk to your mortgage broker about this.
