Also, depending on the sales price of the home, you are allowed up to 6% in seller concessions, this would include repairs, closing costs and prepaids.
Your best bet is still to get confirmation from your lender since they know specifics about your file.
Keep in mind that if the appraiser notes these unrepaired conditions on the appraisal then the repairs must be completed prior to closing or you must go the "escrowed repair" route described above.

What is allowed on an FHA 203K Loan is repairs, but those are subject to the lender's approval and the appraisal, and must be structured as an FHA 203k Home Repair Loan, so when you buy the home, the lender allows this. This must all be a part of your loan. Contact your lender to guide you further.
