What are VA required repairs?

Help the community by answering this question:


VA required repairs are the ones that the VA appraiser will notate on his inspection report. These repairs usually concern items that affect the structure or safety of the home. I've seen every thing from rippled carpet to broken/cracked windows written up.
What ever the VA appointed appraiser writes up to be repaired, they must be repaired prior to closing or the lender will not be able to release the funds. I would ask for those repairs to be completed a few days prior to the closing so that the VA appointed appraiser has time to verify that the items have been repaired. If these items do not get repaired, then the VA will not sign off on the loan.
