Good luck with your closing.

The issue is that no repair has been done yet. I can't paint because of the weather, so I have requested to setup an escrow for now. I'm guessing that the lender charges in advance for future trip by the appraiser. I hope this whole paint condition doesn't cost be unreasonable extra charges like this. I was hoping for the weather to clear up a little so that I could paint before my March 19th closing, but I guess not.
Yes, this additional fee is for the FHA "inspector" having to go back out to the house to re-inspect the home to insure the repairs were done.
Best wishes on a smooth closing!!!
