Bill, Home Buyer in Springfield, MO

VA literature says it does not do inspections,just appraisals.

Asked by Bill, Springfield, MO Wed Jun 15, 2011

The VA appraisal is quite a bit more n I am paying (short sale) , but they want cosmetic repairs made before I can close. I am going to do the repairs but not until I own the place. I have a closing date but it looks like we may not make it due to the VA "INSPECTION" and required repairs ,none safety inspired.As the veteran buying the property can I accept it despite the "appraiser" requirments and go forth with the closing?The mortgage company has accepted my offer for the property ,but, "as is". They are already losing money and won't make repairs themselves.
